Experience Oberammergau 2020 with Scenic
In 2020, thousands of people from all over the world will gather in the tiny hamlet of Oberammergau in Bavaria for a performance of the famed Passion Play. Scenic is inviting you to be part of this unforgettable experience that occurs only once every 10 years.
The Passion Play, a remarkable stage production performed by 2,000 Oberammergau residents, tells the story of the life and death of Jesus Christ through dramatic performances, with choral and musical accompaniment. The origins of the play began in 1633, when the residents of Oberammergau vowed that if they were spared from the bubonic plague sweeping the region, they would produce a play for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus. When the death rate began to subside, the villagers decided they had been spared. The first play was performed in 1634, and it has run ever since, with the five-month run in 2020 marking its forty-second performance. It’s the world’s longest-running play and is widely regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world.
Each decade, the popularity of the Passion Play grows and global demand for tickets for the 2020 performance is expected to exceed supply. Between 20 May and 21 September 2020, Scenic will operate a series of itineraries which include the Passion Play and will seamlessly link with a selection of river cruise departures.
