Since 1816 the entire community of Sordevolo has been representing the Passion of Christ. The Passion of Sordevolo is certainly the greatest choral play ever performed in Italy by amateur actors. The performance takes place in a 4,000 m² open space: a reconstruction of Jerusalem, Herod’s Palace, Pontius Pilate’s Praetorium, the Garden of Gethsemane, the cenacle, the Calvary. The 3-houres performance consists of a prologue and 29 scenes with an overall participation of about 400 actors and extras. This tour combines the passion play with the beauty of the Lake Maggiore region.
