The quaint village of Oberammergau is world famous for its spectacular Passion Play, performed by the locals just once a decade. Globus invites you to experience this legendary event on one of the special vacations being offered in 2010.
In 1634 the Black Death decimated Europe’s population. Oberammergau remained untouched until a homesick villager returned one night, unknowingly bringing with him the dreaded plague. Almost 100 villagers died as a result. Frightened survivors vowed that if God saved them from the plague, once every 10 years they would reenact the agony and crucifixion of Christ. From then on there were no further deaths from the plague—and the villagers have fulfilled their pledge ever since.
The Passion Play performances will begin again in 2010 from May to October, when thousands of Oberammergau's residents will once again display this powerful story. Religious vacations that strenghten your faith and create unforgettable memories. Itineraries include holy places and are operated by those with intimate knowledge, experience and interest in faith-based travel. Customized packages available for parishes and group leaders. The play comprises spoken dramatic text, musical and choral accompaniment and tableaux vivants; these scenes are the basis for the relationship between the Old and New Testament, of the play. The remainder of the performance is a dramatic presentation depicting the Passion of Christ: the trial, suffering and death of Jesus Christ.
