THE PASSION PLAY

In the year 1633, the tiny Bavarian village of Oberammergau was in the terrifying grip of the Great Plague. At that time the inhabitants took an oath that, if their village was spared, they would stage a play every ten years depicting the suffering of Jesus Christ. The villagers fulfilled their oath for the first time in 1634, and have continued to do so for hundreds of years as an expression of faith and gratitude for their salvation.

 ENTHRALLING PERFORMANCE

The play has become one of the world's outstanding cultural events and, although the text and music have been adapted according to the times, the amateur performers' original conception of tradition and compelling oath have remained.

The play shows the story of Christ's passion, beginning with entry into Jerusalem and ending with the resurrection and transfiguration. The structure of the play with its living pictures of the Old Testament and acted scenes from the New Testament provides a constantly changing and enthralling spectacle.

The music for the Passion Play was written in 1815 by the Oberammergau school teacher Rochus Dedler. Employing a huge choir and orchestra, his work frames the entire play to this day.

Pre/Post overnight hotel stays may be needed on some dates. Connecting flights to London and airport accommodation can be arranged by Travelmaker, these are not included in the advertised price.
