The show was entertaining. A struggle between good and evil with comic relief characters (the monkey and the 2 menservants) to keep the plot lively and funny. I would like to commend them for completing the experience by giving us pamphlets detailing the summaries of each chapter in English so that I could follow the plot and enjoy the show.... More

This is a wonderful and unique experience that everyone must see when in Bali. It is wonderful to watch and see the culture of Bali and learn a little more each time. The dance was performed in an excellent manner, and we enjoy the whole evening.

I almost gave this dance a miss as I had also taken tickets for the Kecak. I'm glad I didn't as both have different flavors to them. Do read up on the story before the show as it makes it easier to understand the drama that goes on during the show. The costumes are elaborate and quite a show they... More

My son and daughter find the dancer costume were fascinating, they love it. I do hope they have some explanation/ information about the dance, because I did not know what they were dance about.

These music and dance performances are one of the highlights of Bali, at least in my opinion. This was one of the best. I saw it last year, and wanted to return. Hypnotic music and wonderful costumes. I'm so glad the island is preserving its cultural traditions.
