The Passion Play

In 1633, when the Plague was ravaging Europe, the villagers of Oberammergau turned to God and asked that no more of their inhabitants should succumb to this terrible illness. Their prayers were heard and answered. The following year, the villagers performed a Passion Play out of gratitude for their survival. This powerful act of worship and devotion has been performed every tenth year since, and the next performances are just 2 years away!

From May to October 2020, the Oberammergau Passion Play will bring the story of Jesus of Nazareth to life. Over 2000 local participants will take to the stage to recreate the events of this most significant life. From Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem to his glorious Resurrection, the strength of the towns peoples’ religious conviction shines through.

For more than 2000 years, this man’s life has brought hope to people across the globe. In 2020, the 42nd Passion Play season will offer a solemn reenactment. Now with only 2 years until the season begins, tickets for this powerful performance are flying off the shelves! Book now to guarantee your seat at this inspirational and touching performance.
