What is the Oberammergau Passion Play?
The Oberammergau Passion Play is a unique theatrical tradition that is preformed once every ten years. This exceptional cultural and religious event encompasses over 2000 villagers from Oberammergau to reenact the passion of Christ from His entry into Jerusalem to the Resurrection. In 1633 Oberammergau was stricken with plague. After months of suffering the townspeople made a plea to God to spare them and pledged to act out the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ every ten years. 2022 marks the 42 performance of the Oberammergau Passion Play.
