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 2022 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.
