Adeje’s world famous El Pasión play returns in new format after two year hiatus
By Janet Anscombe MBE
Adeje’s now world-famous Easter celebration, El Pasión is back after a two-year hiatus because of Covid for its 25th edition, but also because of Covid, this year’s Pasión play is a hybrid production that has had scenes filmed in advance which will be used alongside live performances on stage in the Plaza de España in the town centre.
Filming finished last week and has seen the involvement of over 300 people because as well as the cast and crew, there were people working on scenery, costumes, make-up, transport, and a short ‘making of’ documentary which will be broadcast after the event.
La Pasión 2022 will be broadcast from midday on Good Friday, April 15th, on giant screens in the Plaza España, followed by the crucifixion re-enacted in person. It’s the new way of doing things that maintains traditions but minimises crowds, and to ensure safety, tickets will be required to get a seat to watch the film and the re-enactment.
These tickets are free but security concerns means capacity limits will be ensured for everyone’s safety, so to guarantee entry to the plaza they need to be booked in advance on tomaticket.es.
Anyone who can’t get a ticket or is unable to attend in person will be able to follow online on Adeje town halls social media, or on TV Canaria, 13 TV, Mírame TV, Canal 4 Tenerife and Canal 10TV.
