Dances are merged with stories and history in Bali. Many focus on the Sanskrit epics of India which are literature that convey cultural beliefs and structure. The two most well known are the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The Ramayana has 24,000...more
I have seen a few Balinese dance shows in Ubud, the best one is at PELIATAN BALERUNG STAGE, performed on every Friday 7:30pm. Arrive 30 min earlier to secure better seats. After watching this show, you wouldn't be interested to watch at other places anymore....More
Things like this are obligatory. You're in Bali, so go to a traditional Balinese song and dance show. It was not very enjoyable, and the crowd clearly agreed. The comical part was that, 45 minutes in, the audience started leaving in droves. Part of the...More
Since it was raining the event was moved from the palace to a venue across the street, which was disappointing. Nevertheless we enjoyed the performance. The show was a bit uneven but stay till the end because the last two dances are among the best.
Wonderful setting, exceptionally talented dancers and great music. Great value for money considering the cost of tickets for similar shows in Ubud. I went on a Thursday and although it was busy everyone had a seat. I was captivated throughout the entire performance and would...More
Get there early for good seating. It was packed, literally standing room only! This was my second trip to Bali, and this was one of the things I really wanted to see again! Their eyes and hands are unreal. So expressive and different! A true...More
I went to a different show every night in Ubud, and it was the Legong at Ubud Palace that i appreciated the most. Incredible playing from the Gamelan orchestra, which completely drowns out the sound of traffic noise. Amazing dancing, beautiful sometimes strange, sometimes humorous....More
The music, the performance, the dance, the costumes, all is enticing! Some people complained about not understanding the story. But the whole plot from start to finish is described in the leaflet you get with the ticket. I read it as the performance was occuring...More
The palace provides a great backdrop with it's beautiful entrance as an integral part of the performance. In case of rain or palace has some function venue shifts to area in front of palace which has also good set up. In our case venue changed...More
This show is great for a taste of real Balinese culture, the dancing is fantastic and the music is hypnotic and intense, albeit quite hard to sit through a full 90 minutes. Well worth going unless an hour and a half of dissonant, arhythmic gong...More
It was important to me to check out some traditional dance in Bali. The aesthetic qualities have always been extremely fascinating to me so I wanted to get a closer look. After looking up some things online, we decided to check out the legong rather...More

The ticket for for adult is Indonesian Rs 10000. You can see my review of epic. As indian you may not like the dance as. it is not in line of story we know and music is so repeatative. But you may like to go due to child. If you are going to Yogya karta dance is good based o. Ramayana epic.
