The Oberammergau Passion Play is performed every 10 years in the Bavarian town of the same name. The 2020 version of the play will be the 42nd version of the world- renowned production.

Located roughly 60 miles from Munich, the beautiful town of Oberammergau is surrounded by mountains and meadows. The performances of its famous passion play the Passion of Christ take place every decade and it is believed the event has been held since 1634. The play covers the themes of life and death and follows the story of Christ from his entry into Jerusalem through his trial, crucifixion, resurrection and Ascension.

Around 2000 citizens of the town are involved in the production of the play as singers, actors, musicians and technical support. There are 124 speaking roles, a 65-member orchestra and a 48 person chorus.
