The basis for the children's musical "Israel in agypten" is the Biblical report of the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery by Moses. The work contains 12 songs with catchy melodies and texts suitable for children. In the arrangements, elements of pop, jazz, and classical music are joined. The scenes are supplied with many staging directions. The musical is fun for children and makes Biblical stories come alive. The music is funny, lively, and very catchy, so that the children bring home a new "hit" stuck in their ear or on the lips after every rehearsal. (Wurtt. Bl. f. Kirchenmusik 6/00) "The children's musical "Israel in agypten" is a successful piece of musical theatre ... Thomas Riegler shows that he has a sense for theatrical effect, not only with his music, but also with his text. The dialogs are funny, but never hard to learn." (Musik und Gottesdienst 3/00).
