The Passion Play 2020 in Oberammergau
A play of life and death, promised in a moment of mortal threat – so began the history of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1633.
In the middle of the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the Plague, the residents of a small Bavarian village of Oberammergau, swore an oath to God. They pledged they would perform the ‘Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ’ every ten years, if they could be spared any further deaths at the hands of the Plague. They say not a single person fell victim to the Plague after this time and keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the first play in 1634. This tradition has continued throughout the centuries, and the next performance takes place in 2020. Collette will be there, in the magnificence of this performance with several itineraries that showcase the charm and beauty of central Europe.
