Thiersee Passion Play Theatre
Over 200 years of Thiersee Passion Plays.
In 1799, the Thiersee folk praised the suffering and death of the Saviour in the form of a Mystery Play during Lent in order to spare their valley the deprivation of war. The love of Passion Plays was passed from generation to generation of Thierseers.
250 Thierseers aged between 4 and 80 dedicate themselves voluntarily to the old tradition for almost a year as actors, musicians or singers!
After an 18 year break
because of the war, Thiersee reopened its doors in 1955 for the first post war Play, celebrating a wonderful anniversary in 2005 as the most important Passion Play venue in Austria together with Erl. Careful changes to the text, new costumes and stage set design as well as a new composition for the Passion music were introduced for its 50th birthday.
The next Passion Plays in Thiersee take place in 2011.
