Story of "Jerusalem" returning to Branson
The return engagement of "Jerusalem" performed by Dudu Fisher is scheduled for May 1 through May 20 and Oct. 1 through Oct. 21, excluding Saturdays, at the Caravelle Theatre on Mo. Hwy. 76 West in Branson.
"Jerusalem" is a story about the holy city of Jerusalem, the capital of the state of Israel and the spiritual capital of Christians, Jews and Muslims throughout the world.
"Although Jerusalem was physically destroyed thousands of years ago," Fisher said, "it was never spiritually destroyed. Throughout those years the Jewish people never forgot their beloved city and always prayed toward her, dreamed of her and sang to her."
Backed by his band of world-class musicians, through 18 songs, stories and visual effects, Dudu tells the story of Jerusalem and its people.
Fisher is known throughout the world for his stirring performance as Jean Valjean in the hit show "Les Miserables." In addition to a long run in his home country of Israel, he starred in "Les Miz" on Broadway and in London's West End. During his long career, Fisher has recorded 38 albums. He sang the role of Moses in the Hebrew version of Stephen Spielberg's "The Prince of Egypt." He has sung with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded an album of show tunes with the London Symphony Orchestra and has performed with the Baltimore and Queens symphony orchestras. He has performed for Britain's royal family, the Thai royal family and for President and Senator Clinton.
Tickets go on sale March 1 at the Caravelle Theatre box office and at various area ticket outlets.
