Passion Play Oberammergau 2030: History, Tradition and Passion

The Oberammergau Passion Play is undoubtedly the world’s best-known passion play and a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Site. These passion plays were first performed in 1634 as a redemption of a vow after surviving the plague. Since 1680 they have been performed every ten years in Oberammergau, usually in the last year of a decade. In the 21st century, the planned performances had to be postponed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic, first to 2022 and then to 2030.

Preparations – Passion 2030

Preparations for the Oberammergau Passion Play 2030 are already underway. After all, after the Passion is before the Passion and there are always many decisions to be made. The play and schedule for the performances will be set by 2027 at the latest, so that all participants and visitors can be informed in good time. In addition, the prices for tickets and arrangements have to be determined so that everyone who is interested has the opportunity to take part in the performances. Casting the roles is also an important part of the preparations so that the actors and actresses have enough time to prepare for their roles.

But there are many more organisational preparations to be made to ensure that the Passion Play runs smoothly. The stage equipment has to be checked and renewed if necessary, the costumes have to be made and fitted, and the rehearsals have to be organised. Accommodation and catering facilities for the visitors also have to be planned and prepared.

When will the Passion Play 2030 take place?

The Oberammergau Passion Play 2030 is expected to take place from May to October 2030 on the following performance days: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is expected that the Passion Play will once again attract thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Hair and beard ban

But before the Passion Play begins, there is the traditional “hair and beard decree” on Ash Wednesday 2029. All participants must let their hair and beards grow in order to have an authentic hairstyle of the actors and not have to use wigs. Members of the armed forces and police will then need an exemption from the service, as certain regulations apply to the hairstyle.
