Don't miss the actors' trip to Israel, the designing of set and costumes, the beginning of the rehearsals...
About half the inhabitants of Oberammergau take part in the once-a-decade Passion Play.
This means that over 2,000 villagers will bring the story of Jesus of Nazareth to life for the audiences that flock in from around the world. The play starts with Jesus entering Jerusalem, continues with his death on the cross and finishes with the resurrection. As ever, this is an extraordinary community enterprise.
2010 sees a new production directed by Christian Stückl, director at Munich's noted Volkstheater. He is supported by the artistic team that along with him staged the 2000 Passion Play: deputy director and dramatic adviser Otto Huber, set and costume designer Stefan Hageneier and music director Markus Zwink and conductor Michael Bocklet - all from Oberammergau. The play starts at 2.30pm and, including a three-hour interval, ends at 10.30pm.
The 102 performances take place between May 15 and October 3, 2010.
When the villagers come together, their devotion and talent retells the story of Jesus, with a message that gives hope and strength to millions.
