Pilgrims traveling to Rome for the Jubilee year have the opportunity to attend a musical about Bernadette of Lourdes: the 13-year-old girl who experienced one of the most well-known Marian apparitions.

(There will be) millions of pilgrims in Rome and we hope to touch a million hearts with this show so the news can spread all over the world.

The producers and cast of the musical explain that the message of Lourdes appeals beyond a Catholic audience.

To think that anyone, even poor, even sick, even without knowing how to read, how to write, can be the one that is chosen. And that's a message we want to spread all over the world.

Bernadette's story is actually very similar to what everyday teenage girls experience, not because of what she was, but simply because of the character she had and the attitude she had in dealing with the situation. Her main characteristics are tenacity and courage and these are two characteristics that many teenagers have in their everyday life and work on everyday.
Most of all, I thought it was difficult to step into her shoes, but after getting to know her, I realized she acted like a simple girl and that I just had to be myself.

The idea for this musical was born after the producer visited Lourdes.

We were in front of the grotto and that night realized, “Oh my God, we have to tell the story of this place because it is amazing.” Because millions of people from all around the world are coming to Lourdes, which is a small town in the south of France, with hope. It's one of the most famous French cities in the world and we have to explain why. And it's because of that little girl, Bernardette, who was 13 years old. And all because of her, millions of people come every year with hope to get better.

The musical will show at an auditorium next to the Vatican. It is currently scheduled to be in theaters for a month from January 16 to February 16, 2025 but the dates may be extended.
