The Passion of Christ play 2020
Every 10 years, the world’s most famous passion play production is staged is the tiny Bavarian alpine village of Oberammergau for 5 months of the year; from May to September. It involves 5 acts, years of planning and preparation and a cast of up to 2000 villagers. Depicting the final days of the life of Jesus Christ, the village vowed to remain staging the play periodically as a promise to God made during the Black Death, when much of the village was affected. By offering to theatrically represent the son of God in this way, it was hoped that the tragedy of the epidemic would not be repeated.
Each time the play is staged it’s more lavishly produced than before. Some of the thousands of costumes used are centuries old and the theatre can seat nearly 5,000 audience members. If you’re interested in a unique theatre experience, or seeing a traditional passion play performed in an authentic manner, then you’ll need to book your tickets for Oberammergau’s 2020 production now.
