Our driver suggested we see this show when, on our way to our hotel from the airport, I asked why the statues around the town/ city were adorned with sarongs. We saw this show the first morning! We were early to arrive so got front row seats, however there would not have been a bad seat in the place. The... More

This is actually a good (Barong) vs evil (Rangda) morality play in 5 acts. Great costumes and action and would be fun to bring kids to. Suggest that you grab a program guide before you see the play to understand the scenes. Think Kabuki Theater or Western Melodrama with an Indonesian flair.

We purchased the tickets adult Rp.100,000 and child Rp.50,000. Initially we had much enthusiastic for the show, but may be it was due to story line is too long, and a little bit confusing of the characters appeared on the stage and trying to figure out who is who. In the end, we found it a bit boring through out... More

So this is probably the biggest smack of local culture to the face you're going to experience first thing in the morning. The costumes were nice, the stage itself is stunning. The band will play the same song for an hour without skipping a beat and you will be impressed by that. You'll also become incredibly confused with the story... More

We were brought here by our driver/guide on our way up to Kintamani. 100,000 rupiahs per person for a performance of Barong & Kris. We arrived 15mins earlier to get good seats but after the show started, they still let people walk in. It was disrupting as they walked pass you unapologetically to find seats. At the entrance, they handled... More

We wanted to get an idea of Balinese culture through the dancing and this is exactly what we got. The hall is a great venue, although, the seats were quite uncomfortable. We enjoyed the prelude with the men playing the Balinese instruments. The costumes were authentic and very colourful and their makeup flawless. It was a 5 act show which... More

This is where the Barong dance is watched-The dance between good and evil.This is an excellent facility,though you will have to pay around 100000 Rp as an entry ticket per person.Well worth it.There are benches or stools around a stage but well covered in case it rains.No food facility as far as I could see.Pure cultural centre.Need a car to...

They gave you a leaflet to explain each act. However it was still quite confusing to follow through. they should have used a microphone when they act as their voices were drained by the gamelan (music). I must applaud them for the effort on their make up as well as costumes. 100 000 rupiah to be paid upon entering per... More
