Oberammergau is a town in the Bavarian Alps, know for its once-a-decade performance f the Passion Play.  The play was first performed in 1634 and has been every 10 years ever since in response to a vow made by the inhabitants who were spared from the plague.  The play involves around 2000 people, all of whom have to be inhabitants, and takes 7 hours (in two sessions with an extended break between).
