He was only 22 when he was invited to become the cantor of the Great Synagogue of Tel Aviv. Fisher also traveled throughout the world, bringing traditional Chassidic, Yiddish, and Cantorial music to new audiences. Playing the lead in "Les Miserables" was a turning point in his career. It was the longest running show in Israel and catapulted him to stardom. In 1988 he was invited to London to take part in a royal command performance hosted by the Queen of England, a special version of "Les Miz" featuring artists from around the world. As an observant Jew, Fisher was the first actor on Broadway and the West End to be excused from performing on Friday nights, Saturday matinees, and all Jewish holidays. During his long career, Fisher has recorded over twenty albums, and he's recently filmed an Emmy-nominated PBS special in the valley of Beit She'an, Israel.
