The five-hour musical drama follows the life of Jesus from the time He entered Jerusalem through the Resurrection. Most of the Passion Play is sung opera-style with a full orchestra and chorus providing a rich musical backdrop. Over 2000 people — nearly half the population of the village — will have parts in the production, either on stage or behind the scenes.
The modern play takes place on an open-air stage with a covered auditorium seating 4,700. With a total cast of 1,000, the play boasts 130 speaking parts and hundreds of smaller parts. To be eligible for a role, the person must have either been born in Oberammergau or lived there 20 years.
