El Paso de Riogordo

Performance of the life, passion and death of Jesus Christ.

Important Information:

Given the forecast of rain for Good Friday and Saturday, after consulting the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the Organizing Board of "El Paso de Riogordo" has decided to suspend the performance scheduled for Good Friday and Saturday (March 29 and 30).
At the same time, it has decided to celebrate the staging of the life, passion and death of Jesus on SATURDAY, APRIL 6th AT 17h.
We apologize for any inconvenience that may be caused. We hope that it will be understood that force majeure has led us to take this measure.
Within the sorrow that causes us this fact, we think that postponing the representation to Saturday 6, can be an opportunity for many people linked to the brotherhood world, which will have the opportunity to visit what has been considered one of the best stagings of the Passion at European level; declared, moreover, as a Festival of National Tourist Interest in Andalusia and Spain.

El Paso 2024 Poster Presentation 

We present the poster of the representation of El Paso 2024, a work by our countryman Antonio Jesus Navarro Santamaría.

As its own creator defines it:

"Asymmetrical balance "For me "El Paso de Riogordo" is something more than the representation of the life and Passion of Jesus Christ. It is the life and passion of more than 400 actors and actresses, all worthy of recognition. In this work, with very natural colors, two children are the ones who make up this asymmetry, "Isaac" and a "village girl", very different roles, but with a single look, innocent and expectant of what is going to happen.In this work, as in the asymmetry, my mind and my hands merge creating a work full of feelings, strength and balance.I present the "Poster of El Paso de Riogordo 2024".
