Throwback Thursday Special: Robert Merrill and Richard Tucker Sing Fiddler on the Roof Medley


During the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, the thought of opera brought to mind the great Jewish opera singers Ruven Ticker, Moishe Miller, and Jacob Pincus Perelmuth.

What? You never heard of them? They all had humble beginnings as the sons of Jewish immigrants but they changed their names and emerged as stars of opera and concert performers Richard Tucker, Robert Merrill, and Jan Peerce.

In August 1973, Tucker and Merrill performed a Fiddler on the Roof medley conducted by Arthur Fiedler in Boston. On this Throwback Thursday let's go back 44 years and enjoy their singing.
