Mandira Baruga was formerly known as PURAWISATA, Travel Destinations that are well known and visited by millions of tourists from various foreign countries. Mandira Baruga transformed into culture-based Travel Destinations presenting Javanese nuance. Purawisata Ramayana Ballet is a product that is very popular among tourist travelers and is present every night in an Amphy Theater. Even in 2002 Ramayana Ballet is getting the Charter of MURI (Indonesian Record Museum) for his performance every day continuously for 26 years.
Turn on your imagination … what would it be, if the stories carved on the Prambanan’s reliefs were visualized and showed into performing arts? Ramayana Ballet performance is the answer.
The Ramayana Story is taken from Walmiki’s epic and created into an enchanting performance with a mixed variety of elements from the art, dance, music, drama, lyrics and song, make-up, specially selected costumes, stage, and lighting. All put together, they create a piece of art performance that is favored and priced by both domestic and foreign tourists.
Ramayana Ballet performance at Purawisata Theater is held regularly every night, regardless of the weather and number of visitors. Now, Purawisata Ramayana Ballet is entering its 40th year since it was held for the first time. The loyalty and consistency of Purawisata Ramayana Ballet and its commitment to hold the performance every day made the Indonesian Record Museum (MURI) grant an exclusive award.
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 appearances, the sound is turned into the 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 the players on the stage.
Performance at 08:00 PM - 09:30 PM
