In 1632 a terrible plague, had infested the small town of Oberammergau, Germany and by 1633 nearly every family had come to experience death. All the villagers were in absolute misery so they vowed to perform a Passion Play, depicting the suffering and dying of Christ, every ten years, in exchange for the plague to end. It is said that not a single person fell victim to the plague after the promise. Since 1634, the people have fulfilled their pledge, almost without any interruption, and continued the tradition for over 380 years.
Nestled in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, 2 hours from Munich, the 42nd Passion Play will be held from May 16 through October 4, 2020. People from all corners of the world will travel to the Passiontheater Oberammergau to experience one the 102 performances. As an integral part of the culture of Oberammergau, all of the 2000 actors, singers and musicians of the world's largest amateur dramatic performance must have been born in the village or have lived there for at least 20 years.
This is your chance to be a part of a rich tradition, surrounded by majestic mountains and picturesque meadows, and to witness Oberammergau’s unique history. Even though they are expecting more than half a million visitors, tickets for the Oberammergau Passion Play are expected to sell out.
