It was not the usual outdoor but indoors but it is one of the best productions I have seen. It is important to note that for most of the people who were performing it is not about their religion. Great performane, choreography and background musical scores. Not to miss at all if you are making a trip.

The performance was real quality and performed by good dancers. The story was easy to follow for us as Indians and the leaflet handed out before the show helped others to follow the story. There was some great pyrotechnics at display too during the performance.
The food was very average and small quantity. I would recommend for people to only buy the performance package and have dinner on their own before going for the show.

I have visited Prambanan a couple times during the days. For the first time I had an opportunity to visit Prambanan and enjoy the Ramayana Ballet at 7 pm. It wasn't as spectacular as Kecak, Balinese Dance, but it is a must try tourist destination in Jogja. It represents the richness culture of Javanese-Hinduism. The stage, the seats, the casts are amazing. What I love the most is the background, The Majestic Prambanan Temple. The true meaning of beauty ! Mesmerizing !

The ticket price is very affordable. I suggest to get the VVIP since they provide more comfortable seats with cushions. For the lower class, the seats are cement-made, not so comfortable for 2 hour performance.

Featuring Ramayana ballet in various episodes. In general, Javanese dance, but once in awhile there are ballet from other regions in Indonesia.

The ballet is performed by either amateurs or dancers who have not rehearsed enough. The backdrop of the temple and the magical setting, beautiful costumes and a few gimmicks cannot be a substitute for a good performance. The stage is anyway quite far from whichever part of the theatre, except the first few rows of the VIP seats. The hype about the show is misleading. We had to endure two hours of lack lustre, out of sync, poorly executed movements. A couple of dancers ( Ravana and Hanuman) appeared to be professional, the rest may have been students with no proper training. Being a theatre artist, I am reluctant to comment adversely about any performance, but this is just a rip off intended for tourists who may not have had any exposure to this form of dance. Do not waste your time and money.

Ramayana Ballet was interesting and colourful. We experienced it at the open air theatre and enjoyed it. The almost 2 hours show was a good way to spend the evening.

What a great show (saw the full story). Fantastic views of Prambanan at night (and if you're lucky, the moon as well). Costumes are beautiful and show is well put together! And there's two monitors that tell you in English and in Bahasar what the scene is, so that it's easier to follow the story. We sat in the VIP seats, which are cushioned seats, very nice and comfortable although they could renew the cushions as they are not as full as they once were. But much more comfortable than the other seatsb(see photos). There's also a buffet dinner available next door.

I’m sure that if you’re into the Indonesian culture and saga’s, this would be a great show for you. For me however too much of a culture shock, both the Ballet as well as the music. It’s the Indonesian version of an opera but hard to understand for westerners. Prepare yourself and read about the story before you attend
