Nearly 400 years ago the history of the Passion Play began. In 1633 the Oberammergau
villagers promised to perform the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ every
tenth year, in so far as no one was to die of the plague anymore. The villagers were
answered by God and therefore in 1634, the first Passion Play took place. The promise
has been kept until today! All actors of the world’s largest amateur dramatic
performance come from the village since a special play law is in effect. All
participants, from actors to members of the choir, orchestra members, firemen, and
ushers, must have been born in Oberammergau or have lived there for at least 20
years. Altogether, more than 2,000 Oberammergau villagers will participate in the
2020 Passion Play.
