Welcome to my Website.
Is there something hidden inside you that you desire. Be it temporal or Spiritual? Perhaps a GOAL, a TRIP? Maybe a chandelier. How about a NEW CAR, a RELATIONSHIP? But for some reason you can’t get started. Well then you have come to the right place.
For me it all began with Italy. I had always wanted to go to Italy. In my Real Estate Classes they said for me to find a picture of Italy and tape it to my computer so I could look at it every day and dream of going there. It was a way to motivate me to sell or list houses. A few years later in 2010, I went to a funeral at a church of a fellow realtor. There was a lovely soloist who sang so exquisite. I bumped into her afterwards and told her she had a beautiful voice and what did she do? Well she was the Church Music Director. She explained that she conducted a choir. Hmmmmm. I used to sing with the Mormon Youth Symphony and Chorus in my younger life. She asked what part did I sing? And I told her, 1st Soprano. Well she told me they were needing more Sopranos and by chance would I like to go to Italy, Germany, and Austria. Oh boy, would I! I have been dreaming about it for years. She asked, “do you have $3000?” Well, “Yes” I did. “Can you go to Italy with us.” “Yes” I did.
Did you know that every 10 years in a tiny Village called Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany is a passion play of Jesus Christ that has been a tradition of the inhabitants of the Village since 1634. That’s right. And it is spectacular.
Henry Ford attended in 1930. It is an outdoor open air stage. It made me cry because I was so grateful Jesus died for me and it appeared that I was seeing the story for the first time come alive. The Trip to Italy was Fabulous and the “Bonus” was The Passion of the Christ play. The residents of Oberammergau participate as a matter of local pride filling in the cast of hundreds which mean hundreds of fabulous costumes. By tradition men begin to grow beards at least a year before to look authentic to the time. The costumes are handmade. In 1633, the Black Plague was sweeping through Europe. The Villagers of Oberammergau vowed that if their town survived they would perform the Passions of the Christ every 10 yrs. The town was spared and it is amazing that they have been honoring this pledge from generation to generation. Over 2,000 citizens are involved including acting, singing, musicians and technical support.
Plan to get your tickets & hotel early for 2020 May-Oct. The Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ” as performed for 2010 took place in 2 sessions. The beginning in the afternoon at 2:30PM for 2 ½ hrs. with a break to eat between 5 and 8PM and the second ½ for another 2 ½ hours of pageantry and passion. There are several accommodations types, from luxury hotel to wide range of different accommodations in several towns that surround the Ammergau Alps.
