Prambanan

Event Information

Location : Prambanan
Time : Tuesday, 03 January 2017 - Saturday, 30 December 2017
Media 1

Based on an epic Hindu poem, the story of model king Rama was adapted to become an important local dance, encompassing the Javanese style, culture and music. Whilst the story originated in India, the Javanese version is a representative of the local art and culture. In the evenings, this ballet comes to life, enacted by over 200 professional dancers and musicians on an open air stage that takes advantage of the Prambanan Temples as a backdrop. Prambanan’s Siva Temple depicts the ballet as interpreted locally in a series of  stone reliefs, making the link to the site hundreds of years strong.

 

The story revolves around the duties of relationships; the qualities of the ideal wife, king, brother and servant.  Gods, mortals, giants, monkeys and beautiful women all come together to tell the colourful story of a courtship punctuated by a kidnapping and battles.

 

The outdoors performances run from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, and are weather dependent.
