Ramayana Ballet, performed at Purawisata Yogyakarta, Indonesia is a perfect place to watch Ramayana Ballet. Only 4 minutes from Malioboro Street. It has been staged regularly every night since 1976 and it has received an award from Indonesian Record Museum (MURI). It also has been performed at Open Air Stage (only will moved to Indoor if it rains).

First of all: we visited the ballet at the theater at Jogjakarta. Be prepared: you van dinner before the performance, but it is very expensive. It was not a beautiful performance. Amateuristic. You have to like the music. To Western ears it is hard to...More

Our hotel strongly suggested to visit this location and frankly speaking it didn't disappointed. As all the tourist sport in Yogya, the prices are very expensive compared to other places in Indonesia, but for the performance you will see, it is more than fair. 90...More
