“Dramatic, exciting performance”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The performance tells an epic story from the Ramayana (clearly explained in the brocure they give you upon entering). Costumes are gorgeous and the setting is quite dramatic. The 'music' provided by the chants of the men was incredible. The fire dance was thrilling, fast-moving and entertaining. A perfect ending to our Ubud visit.

“You have got to see this!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

What an amazing performance, I have seen this in the movie baraka and couldnt believe I was sitting watching it live in Ubud. I wanted to sit and join them. The dancers and their customs were super. It was fantastic and such good value. The fire dancer was great at the end, kicking the burning coconuts about, if not a little scarey.

“Excellent! Don't miss”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Kudos to the entire crew for putting on a great performance! From the start to the finish we were thoroughly engaged in the raw energy of the show. It definitely helped that they provided us with a synopsis. The fire dance was great too. The cost was $75,000 Rup per person. Recommend 100%!

“Traditional dances”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I attended the dance at a local village and was amazed by the colorful display, enthusiasm, and sheer spectacle.
I would suggest reading up (and doing this a few times to fully understand the background!) before you watch, as you may find it difficult to follow the legend.
It was quite amusing is to see local villagers (that I got to know and spoke to on a daily basis) dashing around, changing into colorful costumes, singing or chanting along with great gusto.
The Balinese are a very happy bunch and get very enthusiastic about traditional ceremonies etc - so the spontaneous performances are convincing.
