Tickets are free but should be booked on in advance to guarantee entry to the Plaza España on the day

8 april 2022
The 25th edition of La Pasión, the Adeje Good Friday performance has reunited many amateur actors who have taken part in the event over the years, playing the principal parts.  This week the public can now book their tickets to the event, in the Plaza España from midday on April 15th, through  Tickets are free, but security concerns means capacity limits will be ensured for everyone’s safety. 
The filming of La Pasión 2022 finished last week and has seen the involvement of over 300 people.  As well as the cast there were crew personnel and those working on scenery, costumes, make-up, transport and a short ‘making of’ documentary which will be broadcast after the event.  The film is currently in the editing suite in preparation for the screening on April 15th.
Among the cast are many who are played Jesus and Mary over the years, Roberto Melo, Fabián Ramos, Ana Niebla Magdalena and Esmeralda del Valle. There are others who have, over the 25 year period, played many key roles, including Sebastián Álvarez, David Pérez, Pepe Aquino, Sergio Vargas, Florencio Javier and Gabrielle Zizzi.  Others with an extended history of involvement in the productions are Abraham Alonso, Néstor López, Santy Cano, Antonio Acosta, Nicolás Tenias, Alfredo Zizzi, Santy Cano Jr and Jordan Elejardes who plays Herod this year.  
This is the first year the organisers held a casting call and auditions for the main parts, and this was a huge success, according to all involved. The main part of Jesus Christ is being played by José Antonio López Delgado.  The director, Abraham Gómez, felt his performances and his personal commitment to the part make him the perfect choice to play the part again.
La Pasión 2022 is a hybrid presentation, film and live action, which the public can attend on April 15th in the Plaza de España from 12 midday, but do reserve your entrance in advance. The first part, the film, will be shown on giant screens in the Plaza España, and the second and final scenes will be live, including the crucifixion. If you are unable to attend in person, you can follow the action online on the council’s social media, or on Televisión Canaria, 13 TV, Mírame TV, Canal 4 Tenerife and Canal 10TV.
