Dudu Fisher, Symphony Hall, Boston, MA, November 1, 2009

Known for his stirring performance on Broadway as Jean Valjean in LES MISERABLE and as a world famous Israeli cantor, Dudu Fisher brings an exciting and visually stunning show to Boston’s Symphony Hall (303 Mass. Avenue) on Sunday, November 1, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $45-75 and can be purchased at www.bso.org or by calling 888.266.1200.

Based on his highly successful PBS special, IN CONCERT FROM ISRAEL, Fisher will take the audience on an inspired journey connecting his talent as a Broadway performer, cantor, and contemporary artist with music and stories that celebrate the beauty of Israel's landscape, culture and people.

Fisher has performed on the stages of Broadway, the West End in London, Israel, and throughout the world, including singing with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Maestro Zubin Mehta, recording an album of show tunes with the London Symphony Orchestra, and performing for Britain's Royal family and Bill and Hillary Clinton. He is the only Broadway performer to receive a Broadway contract allowing him to observe the Jewish Sabbath by not performing on Friday evenings and Saturday matinees, a recognition of his talent and dedication to the role and a constant source of pride and accomplishment in his career.

Fisher'€™s Fall 2009 North American Tour is a celebration of the PBS television special that capitalizes on his incredible vocal and artistic range and features a repertoire that goes well beyond the television show. It tells the story of a cantor who finds success on the stages of Broadway, but who never forgets his home or the musical landscape of Israel. The tour concludes with shows in Toronto on November 5 and in Baltimore on November 7.
