A Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience…
at a Once-a-Decade Event!
AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
Preparation are already underway for the next Passion Play
in the tiny Bavarian hamlet of Oberammergau.
The shows in 2020 may seem distant but the excitement is already building for the next production.
Demand for tickets is sure to high and space on tours will be limited.
AN EPIC HISTORY
It began all the way back in 1633. Oberammergau was suffering from the Bubonic Plague.
the surviving villagers appealed for Divine intervention to save their families.
They vowed that if God were to spare them, they would perform a Passion Play every 10 years.
They say not a single person fell victim to the Plague after that.
Keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the play in 1634 and have continued
to do so throughout the centuries.
Today, many of Oberammergau's residents still take part in this
powerful work of art featuring dramatic performances, beautiful music and choral accompaniment.
The residents of Oberammergau will again perform The Passion Play in 2020.
