A PROMISE TO GOD MADE 4 CENTURIES AGO:

Every ten years ending in zero, history takes place in the small town of Oberammergau, Germany. Surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Bavarian Alps, people from all over the world gather in the charming village for one purpose: to witness the town’s residents fulfill a promise made to God almost four centuries ago. On a stage set against a backdrop of the breathtaking vistas, the villagers perform one of the most unique Passion Plays in the world by incorporating the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ with their own tragic story. Discover for yourself how this memorable dramatic experience inspires passion, a renewed faith and hope in all who encounter the production of the Oberammergau Passion Play.

From your assigned seat watch the production take place on the open-air stage of the Passion Play Theatre. The five-hour performance is broken down into twelve different acts, with a break for dinner between scenes six and seven. The story portrays the final days of Jesus of Nazareth, from His arrival in Jerusalem on a donkey to His death on the cross and His miraculous resurrection, all while weaving in the tragic tale of how the plague was brought to Oberammergau throughout the acts. A hundred-person choir and a fifty-five instrumentalist orchestra accompany the dedicated ensemble to create a once-in-a- lifetime experience. The Passion Play is performed in the German Language however textbooks are provided in English to follow along easily.

It takes two years to prepare the town for the influx of visitors from all over the world, and for the actors to prepare for their roles. For one entire year before the Passion Play, ordinary townspeople who are usually doctors, teachers, shop owners, restaurant workers, and so much more, practice every day and dedicate their lives to the production of the play.
