A Once-in-a-Decade Experience
THE OBERAMMERGAU PASSION PLAY 2020
2020 may seem distant, but excitement is already building for the next production of Oberammergau – the Passion Play that occurs only once every 10 years, in the tiny Bavarian hamlet of Oberammergau. In keeping a pledge made nearly 400 years ago, this reenactment of the crucifixion of Christ preserves the health and well-being of Oberammergau’s residents to this day and is regarded as the most important passion play in the world.
Preparations for the play, performed solely by the residents of Oberammergau, have already commenced with the main actors expected to be announced in October 2018.
