Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I read the advertisements: largest outdoor amphitheater in the world with 9 stages. But I had no real idea what that meant...9 stages are 9 theaters to real life scale...envision chariots racing in front of buildings, Pontus Pilate trying to reason with Jewish priests, to Christ not only crucified, but resurrected into the sky in a plume of smoke. Amazing. The woman in front of me was sobbing, it was all so real.

Be prepared to walk a lot to the nine outdoor theaters which are quite separated (there is excellent wheelchair service and special viewing areas). Be prepared for crowds. -- 5000 to 10,000 a night ( Monday is the least crowded). Be prepared for excellent acting. Be prepared to be immersed in Christ's last days.

You can still feel the drama if you don't speak Portuguese. Headsets are available, but not everything is translated, and since I knew the story, I preferred not to use them.

This may be a once in a lifetime adventure...don't miss it, and if you come from another country, it's worth planning your trip the week before Easter and immersing yourself in this drama that is so powerfully enacted.

I took my mother-in-law to visit Brazil for the first time in March. The day before our last day in Pernambuco, we went to watch The Passion of Christ play. We bought our tickets through a tourism agency in Recife that included the bus with guide, very good snacks, and a stop in Caruaru for lunch. We arrived early enough in Brejo da Madre City, where Nova Jerusalem is located, to walk through the buildings built only for the play "Passion of the Christ". It is incredible! The best was the play. They even have an English assistance radio for real time translation Portuguese-English that helped my mother-in-law to understand the play. We also saw that they have assistance for disable people to follow the play in wheelchairs. Fantastic experience to watch and walk near to the actors during the play. I really recommend watch this play there, which is only played during Easter.

Bought the trip on the hotel and it used a day due it's visiting other places like "Caruaru free market" etc till the evening when the theater goes on. Recommend to bring a jacket and panties on a bag due in the evening the warm temperature drops to a bit chilly. Back very late in the night. Was tiring.

We went to see and experience the play Paixão de Cristo. Simply sensational. Very real and makes us reflect on everything that happened to be here today.
The place is beautiful, clean, and organized.
Tips: comfortable shoes, water, heart open to receiving lots of good energy.
It was awesome!

A grand spectacle, it represents the Passion of Christ in an open-air space and with the audience participating in the final moments of the life of Our Lord Jesus Christ. A little tiring, but rewarding.
