"Ramayana Ballet" Indonesia Nightlife Tip by Sharrie

Indonesia Nightlife: 49 reviews and 38 photos


My friend Geraldine and I happened to visit Yogya during the dry season and were lucky enough to attend the performances (only 4 successive nights; twice each month from May to Oct. yearly) of the Ramayana Ballet held at the outdoor theatre in Prambanan and it certainly is the most spectacular dance-drama I've ever seen. With the Shiva Temple as a backdrop, the 3-hr ballet performance from 7-10pm comprised of more than 100 dancers and gamelan musicians taking part in a spectacle depicting the story of Rama, a gentle husband, a kindly king and his wife Sita.
