heartfelt portrait of Jesus' last night
9 April 2016 | by dutchtea-322-789530See all my reviews

The Passion is an annual event in Holland. It started of small but has by now become quite the event. It depicts the last days of Jesus Christ from his arrival in Jerusalem until his (mercifully never shown) crucification and resurrection. The Passion features pop-songs which are appropriate for the scenes in which they are sung. Most acting scenes are pre-recorded. There is a large stage with a big choir and musicians who perform the songs live. The storyteller introduces the scenes and the singer who portrays Mary sings her songs live from the stage. I remember the first time it came on in Holland it was really modest and really....not that good. I thought this first US attempt situated in New Orleans was rather good. I liked the song-choices. Trisha Yearwood, Seal and Chris Daughtry were excellent. I never heard of JenCarlos Canela and to be sure he isn't a stereotype kind of Jesus. But he does portray a gentle and vulnerable Jesus. And Tyler Perry was an excellent story-teller. Big thumbs up for all involved
