As the plague spread across Europe in 1633, the villagers of Oberammergau vowed that should they be spared, they would put on a ‘Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ’. After the vow was made, no one died from the plague. The following year the pledge was fulfilled for the first time performed on a stage built in the cemetery above the graves of plague victims. Since then the Passion Play has been performed every 10 years until 2020, when Covid-19 forced postponement of the play until 2022.
Due to a special law, 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.
