Shot on location in Israel, DUDU FISHER IN JERUSALEM is a musical tour of Jerusalem's most iconic songs and sites. Starring world-renowned singer David “Dudu” Fisher, the program features a blend of Broadway show tunes, traditional Jewish folk songs, and emotional renditions of the classic songs his fans have come to expect. Accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra and, on select songs, by the Israeli boys choir The Kinderlach, Fisher takes the audience on an inspired journey, connecting his talent as a Broadway performer, cantor and contemporary artist with the beauty of Israel’s landscape, culture and people. Throughout the pledge special, Fisher visits historic sites in Jerusalem, including the Western Wall, Jerusalem market, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and his namesake, King David’s tomb, sharing stories of his childhood in Israel and his singular career. Fisher, frequently referred to as the “voice of Israel,” has performed on the stages of Broadway, the West End in London, Israel, and throughout the world. He sang the role of Moses in the Hebrew version of Steven Spielberg’s The Prince of Egypt, has performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and recorded an album of show tunes with the London Symphony Orchestra.
