The next passion play will take place in 2020 - Pre-Register Now
Preparations are already underway for the next Passion Play in the tiny Bavarian town of Oberammergau, Germany. The passion play is a dramatic re-creation of Jesus Christ’s last days on Earth performed by some 2,000 local residents of Oberammergau every 10 years in an open air stage. While the shows may seem distant, the excitement is already building for the next production in 2020!
It began all the way back in 1633
This will be the 42nd production of the world renowned play, that originated in 1633 when the town was suffering from the Bubonic Plague. The surviving villagers vowed that if God were to spare them, they would perform a Passion Play every ten years. Not a single person fell victim to the plague so keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the first play and have continued to do so throughout the centuries!
