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 the procession with a large illuminated cross also passes through the city. Well-known Dutch people play the roles of Jesus, Mary, Peter, Judas, the narrator and reporter. What is special is that the role of Maria will be played by the Frisian singer Elske DeWall. She is a singer and sing-songwriter and performs four songs live.
During this event you can spend the night on one of the sleeping ships in the canals of Leeuwarden. So no rush and hustle to catch the train or to get to the car. After the performance, walk quietly to the ship where a great bed will be waiting for you. Wake up the next morning with breakfast waiting for you.
