Dudu Fisher is the internationally acclaimed entertainer who is famously known around the world by the peculiarly distinctive nickname he's carried from childhood. Among other things, he is also known as the Broadway and London's West End star of Les Miserables who, according to its world-wide producer, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, was the best Jean Valjean of them all.
Raised in Israel, Mr. Fisher was professionally trained for opera and the cantorial arts, first becoming a cantor's cantor before gaining recognition as a performer's performer. His reprise of Elvis Presley and other popular singers, as well as the multiple encores at his concerts, attest to that.
Beloved for his renditions of Hebrew, Yiddish and other international melodies, as well as his incomparable concert presentations from Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Fiddler on the Roof and more, Fisher has performed for Presidents Clinton and Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, and many other world leaders on occasions both joyous and solemn.
His successful recording career includes more than 50 albums and three PBS special concerts, including his latest, "Dudu Fisher in Jerusalem," which has been nominated for an Emmy Award and continues to be aired by PBS throughout the U. S.
Dudu may well be Israel's best recognized star performer- even its unofficial musical ambassador to the world, but more than that he is a global entertainer of the first order.
