The Passion of Jesus Christ would be remembered in a special way in New Orleans. Actor and Singer Jencarlos Canela would take the lead role in the special program on passion. He would be enacting the passion by playing the role of Jesus in a live musical dramatization.
Canela would be playing the lead role in the two hour long musical event. The event would dramatize the Last Supper, Jesus’ betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate and Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection. The event would also include the live procession of a 20-foot illuminated cross.
