In the role of Moses, we see the Danish performer Diluckshan Jeyaratnam. Together with him in the role of Ramses, American actor Jason Gotay plays in the English-language version of the musical.

The main feature of the production is the interaction of these two actors. Their remarkable voices individually become exceptional when they combine in the beautiful duets between Moses and Ramses.
