THE PASSION tells the 2000-year-old story of the last hours of Jesus Christ’s life on earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of popular music, sung by the cast and arranged specifically for the event by executive producer and hit music producer Adam Anders (“Glee,” “Rock of Ages”). Set in modern day, the event follows the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth, as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected. This epic event broadcast live from some of New Orleans’ most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of hundreds of people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.
THE PASSION is a format originally created in the Netherlands by Jacco Doornbos and Eye2Eye Media. The Dutch version of THE PASSION has been produced annually since 2011 and has aired consecutively for the last five years, becoming a pop culture phenomenon, commanding more than 46% market share in 2015.
