The Passion tells the story of Jesus during his last hours, his death and resurrection. This musical event is performed live on a square and also the procession with a large illuminated cross passes through the city. Famous Dutch people interpret the roles of Jesus, Mary, Peter, Judas, the narrator and reporter. What is special is that the role of Maria will be interpreted by the Frisian singer Elske DeWall. She is a singer and sing-songwriter and performs four songs live.
During this event you can stay overnight on one of the sleeping ships in the canals of Leeuwarden. So no rushing and hustle to get the train or to get to the car. After the performance, walk calmly to the ship where a good bed is waiting for you. Wake up the next morning while breakfast is waiting for you.
