Experience one of the most determined show in the world. Ramayana Ballet Purawisata
has been performed daily since 1976, and passed through generations of the dancers.
How The Story
Ramayana Ballet performance at Purawisata is divided into several acts. The entire Ramayana story is presented through body movements or dancing, without any dialogues. The melodious strains of Java gending softly sounded to the beautiful dancers gracefully dancing.
Occasionally heard, the sinden is humming songs in Javanese. When the scene changed into Rahwana or Hanoman and the monkey army appereances, the sound is turned into more lively gending.
The stage becomes more crowded when the war begins and the show becomes more compelling at Anoman Obong’s scene. Having enjoyed the show, you can take pictures with all players on the stage.
