Passion Play Oberammergau 2020

Every ten years, the Passion Play in Oberammergau attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world - the premiere of the 42nd Passion Play is on May 16, 2020.

Did you know....

that between 1634 and 1830 the passion play took place without a stage, right next to the church? It was only in 1830 that the venue was moved to the northern edge of the village and a stage was built.

The Passion Play dates back to a vow made in 1633. At that time, the people of Oberammergau promised to perform the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every tenth year, so long as no one would die from the plague anymore.

More than 2,000 local amateur actors, singers and musicians will once again be on stage at the impressive Passion Play Theater in Oberammergau, representing almost half of the villagers.

In 2020 the people of Oberammergau will once again play, with great dedication, the story of the man whose message has given hope and vitality to many for over 2,000 years. The play covers the events from his arrival in Jerusalem to his death on the cross and his resurrection.

For the Oberammergau Passion Play 2020, 102 performances are planned, the last of which will be on October 4, 2020. The Passion Play Theater in Oberammergau has 4,500 seats, making it the largest open-air stage with a covered auditorium worldwide.
