“Bali Agung Show”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

As part of Bali Safari, the Bali Theatre is an excellent theatre, very clean and modern with good sound systems.

The 1 hour-long performance showcasing spectacular costumes and props with great music and dancing. I particularly love the narator's English with heavy Balinese accents and the Legong dancers. The dancers are definitely real Balinese dancers, not just any girls with good looks (I know because I am Balinese and used to be a Balinese dancer myself). The young performers are also very captivating.

Too bad that the story is not my favourite Balinese legend and the whole thing feels a tad bit unoriginal especially if you have watched Siam Niramit in Bangkok, Thailand before. But well, that's just me. And since the show is very affordable, do make sure to watch the show whenever you are in Bali.

“Sophisticated Theater”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A huge sophisticated theater with a colossal show. The story was about Balinese legend preformed by more than 100 performances on stage. The music sounds so beautiful. Don't miss this one if you are visiting Bali Safari

“Fantastic musical not to be missed”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

In just an hour long of the Bali Agung musical show, I had a brief glimpse of the Balinese story and its history. Never once was I bored through the show.

The magnitude, color, costumes, choreography and everything makes it so enticing to watch. The theatre is also very comfortable with tiered seatings and with clear unblocked view of the performance.

I highly recommend watching this show as its reasonably priced considering the amount of efforts that go into it.

“Amuzing show”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Agung Show located in the middle of Safari Park was an outstanding performance of dancers and actors as well as animals.
I had been to musical theater back in my country but this one was wonderful in my idea both becuz of the stage design and light. The story itself was very interesting and was well depicted by the actors and animals. It was interesting to learn about the gods of Bali told through music and show.
Although narration was not perfect English, it was mostly understandable and perhaps it gave a tinge of locality.
If you enjoy theater and dance, you will find this very interesting. The only pity was that you could not take any pics (it makes sense but it could be done by their own photographers.)

What I enjoyed a lot besides the show, was the great organization of people entrance, ushering and leading them out in an organized and respectful way.

You have to but tickets to the park and theater in order to see the show.
