Oberammergau Passion Play
The story behind Oberammergau’s Passion Play began in 1633. Amid the turmoil of the Thirty Years’ War and the devastating Black Death plague -- which claimed one or more members of nearly every family in Oberammergau -- the townspeople made an oath to perform a play depicting the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ every 10 years. They fulfilled this promise for the first time in 1634. In 2010 more than 2,000 local actors, singers, musicians and stage technicians brought this story to life.
