In the evenings, this ballet comes to life, enacted by over 200 professional dancers and musicians on an open air stage that takes advantage of the Prambanan Temples as a backdrop.  Prambanan’s Siva Temple depicts the ballet as interpreted locally in a series of stone reliefs, making the link to the site hundreds of years strong.

The story revolves around the duties of relationships; the qualities of the ideal wife, king, brother and servant.  Gods, mortals, giants, monkeys and beautiful women all come together to tell the colourful story of a courtship punctuated by a kidnapping and battles.
