but i haven't cut my hair for ages or i trimmed it 3 years ago with visual lunch role here at the temple guard been preached a me who play a high priest to condense jesus people who uneasily on. but we're head. it's been, i know i'm one of the 2 people playing jesus, go reservation. so there are 2 jesus that we double up on the main roles to jesus is to mary's too conscious pilot. can i take a selfie with jesus, or anyone who was born in my gulf or had left here for 20 years, can take part in the passion play, including donkey for 400 years, the people of obama go have been bringing the life and suffering of keith to the stage, it's a gigantic amateur plate. half the village joins in. we're not talking about 10 or 20 people here. there are around 2000 people participating. it's
a big show and i really have to see that luckily, i have a ticket. so let's go in, we just have to follow the crowd by the way, the performance less, more than 5 hours. but there is a long intermission in between. i'm really excited. this will cause fits the house with specially built for the passionately 4500 people fit in the auditorium on the stage. there is room for $600.00 performers and then it start. ah, the people flocked to the temple in jerusalem. you don't have to be a christian to be drawn into the story. jesus also arrived at the temple. do you recognize him? that's the guy took a selfie width. it's just got this house. what i
said must nuts. ah, it alternates between acting and singing. only people from obama go sing in the choir. he now did you mind about? yeah, yeah. not that bad. the passion of the participants is very impressive. oh, he's okay. i didn't even say i have to keep reminding myself that these are amateurs on stage here. not a trained actors on phone. there are books in various languages for non german speakers to read along and follow what's happening. ah. 3 but the most emotional moment, it's certainly the crucifixion scene that has
this toy plot. but get a lot of what you think of the passion play when they don't, we are more really beautiful. it felt real that we went to a lateral anamosa, the link between the old and new testaments and music, the acting, the satellite, morsey. it was, oh great is i know enough yet, though. it's just incredible actors. the, the music is outstanding. it's just, it's very emotional, i love it. and what was the most special part of it? what do you think when jesus washed his apostles, feet moving? absolutely amazing. it takes a couple of hours. do you think it's too long from time to time or it was all right? no, not at off. time went rather quickly because you were so engaged in a moment. you understood the story and they just moved it along. was it was
incredible, was very passionate casual play. what dedication hills pheasant. i asked us. it's our 1st time here. and the 3rd time for our friends and was until we were really moved. we shed a tear or 2 and got goosebumps many times against. incredible look like on globally visitors flocked to buses, hotels, and restaurants. meanwhile, i'm meeting in the theaters dressing room with one of the actors. vita halts with one of these indent while you were born obama golf. how many passion place has it been for you? is 6 to 7 when youths doesn't up. is there a dream role? do the little boys in obama? i will say i want to be jesus one day line rather is does no, no. i'm totally happy plane, joseph of aero messiah. i played him in 2010 already. it's a wonderful role. it comes to literally yeah,
it's life a beautiful to biblical figures with nicodemus and joseph of aero mafia were advocates of jesus among the high council. jesus were the camps. how did the passion play actually come about in us? thank is lost. i was have her say to the pin that i think might be pissed. in 1634 . there was the plague and the 30 year war helped. people vowed that if god spared them from the plague, than every 10 years they performed, the passion of christ laden will stand out of yet. so you keep a promise, every 10 years i am forever and leave all to settle just so far. since 1634, i went the other stuff. how did that develop? it's quite a big show, isn't it? how often of knowing c o, but it's thomas cook. yeah. there. why are you denying the the tour operator thomas cook was here with me tonight. he was actually a priest one. so to long he came with a group it the 1st foreign guest at that time. hope to have something more. thomas cook said, if you build a roof over where the audience sits, i'll bring you even more people mock. so that's what they did was the theater is
still the one from 1900. 1 young international audience has grown and grown. and so i'll just, i'll include it. but it wasn't fog. and in what about the beard and hair us is that something jam like or dislike with the guns for when you need a decent angle that up can i had is cut the to this is 50, this is sure it comes with the territory. it's nice if did something you wouldn't normally do, but for us and obama go definitely part of the tradition is letting our hair grow out once every 10 years. it may look a little weird, but there's something special about it, little this group and book, or 2 or half a 1000000 people visit obama golf for the passion play. they come from the united states, south america, scandinavia, germany and many other countries. and they all stroll through this small town. are these shirts remind me of bands when they were on tour?
and here are all the tour dates. ah, you'll definitely notice these colorful paintings and the house facades. they're called lifted paintings. and you can find them everywhere in southern germany. take a look at that. my name's also taken from the bible. one eye catching sight is the hotel i had to post, which has been there since $1612.00. it's even older than the passionate place. and the bus at the hotel, anton pies, it also takes part in the performance, somebody's fume if you take part in the play. so why don't you have a beard, where it's the long hair? the puzzle in schools and i didn't see a big yet italy, the romans and the passion play are very coveted roles because the romans were
occupiers, soldiers, and they shaved and had short hair with the audio and helped them also, especially among younger men and ober, i'm ago it's desirable to be one of the romans in the bass and saying, i'm lucky. not many people over 50 like me get to play a roman. but you, me over 50 and play the roman governor. punch a pilot. the pilot is a villain. what is it like you play such a role to do, to move out of his control and it's quite nice. it's often more of an acting challenge to play a bad guy than it is to play the good guys or more dole characters until they love a little 15 years old for not. it will current if you wooden painted to dynamic. got on top of that. yeah. and these are on the hill, these and my mind, the euro hotel, you're in normal lives, so not pilot at all. well,
i have to make this is how you manage working in the hotel forming stage if you had, i was for them as a lot. so it's a challenging, stressful time. you couldn't do it every year, but every 10 years you have the energy for that. what a good thing is when i'm on stay just guests are in the audience and that means the hotel is relatively quiet from august because if that and vice versa, when the guest throughout the hotel, there is no performance. so i can be there working on the 15th, unless you course there are all the hours you spend at the liter out that the but it's an exceptional year. it can be quite a challenge to least a little who had i was little of up this old, but it's worth it. i just assumed that the 6 months will pay off react law as a bit us. half a 1000000 tourists come to oberon mcgowan a 6 month period. you'd have to be doing something wrong, not to profit in what's and the famous bavarian king lucy. the 2nd. do you know if
you also watch the passion play as well? she doesn't co cut, get the belief that he was given a private performance after he invited the main actors to the lender hall palace. he gave them all golden spoons anyway, but the traitor, judas only got a tin one. blake of the various king movies, the 2nd didn't have to stay in a normal place, like ordinary people. not far from here. he had his own small domiciled build. lynn, the old palace with eating the grounds of linda hope palace, our work of art there. elegant, playful, and serene lyric. the 2nd loved the area, even without the passion play, he would have built a small pleasure palace here for the release of king. this was a fairy tale welt. that reminded him a vast sign in this vestibule,
he pays homage to his great well muddle louis. the 14th of france politic. the 2nd, the son king was everything a villa should be powerful, influential, unsuccessful. this magnificent bedroom is also reminiscent of that sigh. theoretically, little could have received his coat here, like the sun king did at versailles, but little loved solitude. by the way, no prizes for guessing that blue was, is favorite color. ah, the dining room is most famous for its table. it would be set down in the kitchen, then lifted upstairs using a crank mechanism. this way lid, vic gathered his imaginary company of the french coat. he's even said to have had pretend conversations with them. food was always prepared for 4 people.
and finally, the whole of maris ludovic was a night owl. he only rarely came here tearing the day, but after dark by candle light, the effect of the marius must have been breathtaking. ah, linda, who is the only one of lit fix, ambitious palaces that he live to see completed in obama go is full of surprises. let's look at tree stump, but that, oh, it's art woodcarving has a long tradition in obama go. you can also watch many crafts people at work such as use if i build the roots of his family business, go back to 1556,
he tells me it is mainly churches the united states that phyllis order books but passion play visitors are also happy to buy a souvenir, even if it's not cheap. after all this isn't industrial production, it's skilled, manual work. continuing on that theme of skilled manual work, i'm headed to the hairdresser actually had dressers shouldn't have anything to do here, but they're open and i have an appointment here. hello luka. hi lucas. great to have you send us the syllabus. you're not supposed to me yesterday for your time. to be honest, i would have thought the hair salon would be close because people are letting their hair grow out. so why would a hairdresser even be opened these days?
long a long hand needs to be cared for to night and we do trims and take care of people's beards guns, the hair on the upper lip. it can be a difficult job. fair because cannot put your trim my hair while we talk differently of it. maybe the show about me soon, but but too much stuff. this is do you all to take part in the passion play in that job because mitch been yelled at it. yes. and my birthright means i'm allowed to perform a report survey less miss image would be muffler if, if my and how do you do that? it's busy here in the salon. how do you manage the play and working with album? i so it's been been, i think i'm part of the entry into jerusalem. i'm at the theater at 2 o'clock and finished at 4. then i come back here to work. when you set this up for me, ma'am,
let their hair and beer grow out of do women also have to do this for the passion play on the front? oh my god, i so many how to since it's oh yes, i've grown my hair out. women grow, there's too, as much as they can support as soon as we got we got so gabby. normally i don't have a beard, but i let it grow a bit for the person play it. so how do you think it looks? but i think i saw silva and it took me very striking marketing. isn't that not? what is it like after the passion play? does this every one come up and have their hair cut worn english? we love at us. i sufficient guns and if yes, that's really something special after the last performance, there's a real run on the head, dresses of if it lasts a week or 2 to so then it's all over here and target. i'm done on this, but i am gabby did
a good job. now i make my way to the museum. the facades been covered over with costumes from the last passion place in 2000 to 2010, very sustainable. you can buy a real pen like this. they cost $220.00 euros each. can find them online. inside the museum, this cord catch my eye, its one continuous rope of hair connecting each exhibition room to the next. all the hair, me too close, forked the artist who makes this cord out of hair. water and cher, it's soap. the home. how long have you been doing? why short as a law room. why exactly that? i don't know how it was just fun in australia, i met some indigenous people who worked with hair,
and i thought i could do that. and that is what i'm hearing obama go. we end up with huge mountains of hair every 10 years in 2000. i started collecting the hair that performers, and the passion play gave me, i'm and me being that they came home when top from each individual's hair. i made a string with him on his instrument and now take that into the total. i can tug of war. wow. oh, that cuts into the head so it's so tightly woven that it won't come apart. because they've done which is model in a hair of mine and more to live me in this work. mostly mom of course, you know, your hair is too short, really? the guy doesn't matter just for the food so that you can't see it read. ah,
i here is included has between users in there. so yours is the darker one. is just now you're in the string and leap decision to it. so okay. it can thank you. close for taking the time was happy felt april. i have to go and buy the food. it was my dog in the look here and let mile upa. ah, if you're ever in obama, go hang around for a few extra days. the landscape is just great. and this lift takes me to a mountain, the so called quote and zeta, which is 1250 meters high. a surprise awaits me at the top. but 1st i enjoy the view. somewhere back there in the middle of the alps, lice the hotels las emmel g 7 summit,
which brings together the world's leading industrialized countries will take place there at the end of june. top secret, but we were allowed in ah rooms with a view. schloss l mouth is a unique getaway on the edge of the alps. it made headlines in 2015 when it was the sight of the g 7 summit. now, leaders from major industrialized nations are set to meet here again. the script comma is hardly another place in germany like this, and protected and secluded, but still not far from everything. on an easy trip from munich. schloss, elmo's main building is more than a century owned. it has $115.00 booms and sweets, the annex named retreat is found newer. it has $47.00 sweets practically oh,
tell within a hotel, an ideal spot for the g. 7 summit. the sweets were heads of state and government stay are virtually identical. that way, no person is favored over another. and the sublime alpine panorama is there for all to enjoy their on 9 restaurants. in total, the luke dawdle has to mission stars as a devises their call. michelle, here before and asian is classic french cuisine. obama, and that's my background of water, but it's much lighter hub. i use very little butter on so you can easily eat 7 or 8 courses without feeling completely stuffed, which is a lot of fun. las vegas all possible the 8 course menu costs 249 euros. and this junior suite, around 40 square meters, is available for about $700.00 euros a night. guests come from germany, switzerland, and austria, but also from britain,
thrilled with that was great. ah ah ah, oh i am ago is a very special place typically bavarian, but somehow not. i mean, where else does half the village take part in the theatre? people don't go to hairdressers for months and guests from all over the world. come to visit every 10 years. well that only happens here in obama. go. bye bye. see you next time. ah ah
