Homepage > Events > The Passion of Christ at Hagar Qim


On the 31st of March and the 1st of April, the second of the two activities being organised by Malta Heritage will take place, that is the dramatized version of the Passion of Jesus Christ in Ħaġar Qim. The landscape between Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra will be replacing the streets of Jerusalem on that historical night and the audience will become part of the drama. During Malta’s Neolithic the landscape here captivated the island’s inhabitants who chose it as the setting for their rituals. This Easter Heritage Malta is inviting you to rediscover and be captivated by this beautiful landscape.

When booking for this event please mention that you saw it advertised on www.maltababyandkids.com

Starting from Ħaġar Qim Temples, the audience will be guided through the main stages of the passion of Jesus, leading to the crucifixion. A number of historical and natural spots will serve as backdrops to the scenes and monologues which bring the events to the audience in a realistic and personal manner. The play presents the passion of Jesus Christ in such a way as to make the audience feel and experience the happenings on that day in Jerusalem. “The way we are presenting the play is intended to make those who attend feel as if they were part of the crowd witnessing the last two days in the life of Jesus prior to his resurrection. It is for this reason that we have not made any use of amplification throughout the walk”, commented director Alan Fenech who is also playing Jesus.

The number of tickets is limited and therefore those who intend to attend should purchase their tickets as soon as possible from any one of the museums and sites managed by Heritage Malta. For more information do not hesitate to call on 23954239 between 7:30am and 4pm or send an email on education@heritagemalta.org. 

It is recommended that this event be viewed by older children.
