Oberammergau Passion Play Drew Rave Reviews
The hundreds of Nawas tour hosts who attended the 42nd Passion Play of Oberammergau gave it unanimous rave reviews. Many leaders proclaimed the impressive production far exceeded their expectations.
The Passion Play of Oberammergau will next be performed in 2030. Although it is a long way off, the demand for tickets is always extremely high, so be sure to plan early.
Portraying the suffering, death and Resurrection of Christ, the Passion Play was the most artistic version of the play to date. The production boasted magnificent stage settings: there were several new tableaux, colorful pageantry, and beautifully designed costumes that bring the Passion of Jesus to life. More than 1000 cast members participated in 110 performances, which ran through early October.
Two hours of music, performed by a 55-member orchestra and a choir, enhanced the emotional impact. Christian Stückl directed the production for the third time. He was joined by deputy director Abdullah Kenan Karaca, set and costume designer Stefan Hageneier and music director Markus Zwink.
