The Story Behind the Ramayana Ballet
If you’ve never heard of the Ramayana Ballet, you should know that it’s a story about an ancient world where King Rama has a wife named Sita who is abducted by the king of Sri Lanka, King Ravana. In this story, Hanuman, the monkey, becomes the messenger of Rama and the passion, heartache, and struggle of the events occurring. Emotion is told through dancing and humming in Javanese. These impactful movements look fantastic online and are even more illustrious in person. As if the story itself wasn’t good enough, the atmosphere and the Gazebo Garden Restaurant dinner was fantastic.
