Itzhak Perlman

Ticket sales started today to see the incomparable Itzhak Perlman on October 22, 2018. The master violinist will perform accompanied by a klezmorim (klezmer band).

Klezmer is a style of music developed in Southeastern Europe. The style is influenced by Romanian from Moldavia, Bessarabia music and Greek, Ukrainian, Polish, Hungarian and Turkish music. Typical instruments used in a klezmer band include the violin, clarinet, cimbalom, trombone, trumpet, flute, cello, double bass and piano.

The cultural origins of this genre came from Jewish wedding celebrations in Eastern Europe. The genre made its way to the United States evolving greatly as Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants arrived between 1880 and 1924 and came in contact with American jazz.

More than two decades have past since Perlman released his iconic album In the Fiddle’s House featuring klezmer music. Perlman earned his third Emmy Award as his music performance with the world’s finest klezmer musicians was filmed as a PBS special.

Perlman will take you on a charming musical journey from New York’s Lower East Side to the Jewish Festival in Krakow, Poland, at 7:30 p.m., Monday, October 22, 2018 at the Winspear Opera House, 203 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201. For tickets go to or call the box office at 214-880-0202.
