Ramayana Ballet Purawisata Worth Watching – The Show is very interesting and give knowledge about the Old culture and also teaches ethics and moral values to Humans. It’s full of live music and dance , so it is entertainment.
Normally I don’t like to sit such a long time, but I didn’t realize how I passed my time while I was watching the show. I recommend others to learn something about Ramayana before going this show. Hats off to the Artists involved in this show
Ramayana Ballet Purawisata Worth Watching
The ballet starts at 8pm and goes on till 9:30pm. It is accompanied by live Gamelan. One can get English, Spanish, Dutch, German, French,Chinese and Japanese ballet synopsis so one can read during or before the show. The ballet is truly remarkable and the dancers are amazing, committed and the overall show is definitely worth a visit .
I was looking forward to watching this Ramayana ballet at the outdoor theatre at Candi Prambanan. However, due to the weather we were advised by our guide to watch the ballet at Purawisata in the city.
We arrived earlier to purchase the tickets, which was smooth and without much hassle. I had no complaints regarding the price of tickets, as after having watched the ballet…felt that it was definitely worth it! My first impression of the Purawisata complex was impressive, although I was only there for the show. The place oozed understated elegance, beautiful ambience and classic entertainment for its dinner patrons.
The show started a bit late, as they waited for the theatre to fill up. I had seen various Ramayana performances before this and was pretty familiar with the storyline. However, the performance that evening was the best that I had seen so far….the costumes, dancing, and the gamelan orchestra accompanying the ballet was simply brilliant! It was an evening of culture and heritage at it’s best. I was also very pleased to be able to take a picture with the star performers that night! Bravo.
For those who wish to experience some cultural insight and brilliant entertainment to boot, I would seriously recommend coming to this place or even the outdoor theatre at Candi Prambanan for this ballet. You won’t regret it…
Thank you so much for an enchanting evening!
