In 1633 the village of Oberammergau, Germany was ravaged with Bubonic Plague. Villagers prayed to God to rid the village of the plague, and promised to perform the Passion Play in gratitude every ten years. The first Passion Play was performed in 1634, and the promise has continued to date. The 42nd Passion Play will take place in Oberammergau in 2020 with performances beginning in late May until early October.
Why This Event Should Be on Your Bucket List:
It is a unique production that happens only every ten years. It is created and performed exclusively by the villagers of Oberammergau. It is an opportunity to experience the passion of gratitude by the villagers who continue to fulfill their promise.
I recently re-visited this beautiful village on an advance trip to learn about the 2020 preparations. It was an opportunity to personally hear from villagers why the Passion Play is part of their life. Why it is important to them to continue their thankfulness through acts of gratitude by giving of their time to prepare for the Passion Play every ten years. Only residents of the village who have lived in the village for more than 20 years can participate, except for the children, who begin at an early age.
