Oberammergau's staging of the Passion Play, the tale of the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ, draws audiences from all corners of the globe and all walks of life. In its 366 year history, the play has attracted everyone from the Russian and Spanish royal families to the famous engineers Gustav Eiffel and Henry Ford, from composers Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner, to authors Hans Christian Anderson, Simone de Beauvoir, and Jean-Paul Sartre.

From the Publisher:

The Passion Play dates to 1634 when villagers, grateful for having been spared the ravages of the Plague, pledged to present the story of Christ every ten years as a token of thanks. Over 2,000 inhabitants of the tiny Bavarian town particpated in that first performance, and even today only villagers are allowed to take part in the six-hour production. By 1900, the play boasted 175,000 visitors, and since 1934 over half a million people have flocked to witness this spectacular event. In the making for over two years, this year's production is directed by the acclaimed Christian Stukl, and promises to continue the stron artistic tradition of the play.

This richly illustrated volume is the official publication celebrating the performance of the world-famous Passion Play in the year 2000 in Oberammergau, Germany. Focusing solely on the religious spectacle, renowned theatre photgrapher Brigitte Maria Myers' thoughtful images bring this outstanding event to life. An interview, short essay and chronology give insight into the staging of the moving performance, offering the reader a unique perspective into this exceptional tradition.

From the Author:

The people of Oberammergau, in collaboration with photographer Brigitte Maria Myers, have collected and compiled this beautiful volume as a lasting testament to this decade's performance of the Passion Play.
