Passion Play

In addition to special mass ceremonies, an important element of Semana Santa is the Passion Play. Brought to Mexico by Christian missionaries from Europe, the Passion Play is a reenactment of the crucifixion of Jesus. The Passion Play represents a vital element of European culture. In Mexico, brilliant Aztec colors are prevalent, and ancient dances are often performed alongside Christian rituals.
