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.
