  • Bali Agung Show

    An Ultramodern Theare Show in Bali

    0

    Bali Agung is a theatrical art performance combining a Balinese legend, lively dance choreography, vibrant costumes, dramatic music compositions, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, luxurious seating, roomy lounges and modern facilities.

    The Bali Agung show is performed at the Bali Theatre, located within the Bali Safari & Marine Park in Gianyar. The Bali Theatre brings a whole new dimension to theatrical art performances by presenting a combination of traditional and contemporary dance, modern puppetry, and features the animals of the Bali Safari Marine Park as co-stars of the show.

  • The Bali Agung show presents a colossal group effort by 150 performers who bring to the modern stage numerous allusions to the island’s past. The story unfolds as a retelling by a shadow puppeteer who narrates most of the show with his son. The two, in conversation, reveal many important aspects to accompany the stage performances.

    The story is the epic Balinese love tale of King Sri Jayapangus and Chinese princess Kang Ching Wei. Episodes are interspersed with scenes depicting aspects of the island's culture and village life. A royal palatial atmosphere and various stage elements that form fantastical dream realms serve as settings for the romance and heroism depicted in the tale.

    The performances take you on a journey that recounts the romantic, tragic and heroic epic of the two main characters, culminating in the king's intertwining romance with Dewi Danu, the water goddess of the volcanic lake of Mount Batur.

    Bali Agung's main stage is separated from the audience by a narrow pond. Initial episodes feature boatmen pedalling across and real ducks herded through the water. The opening scenes present a regal parade with the king's character riding an elephant, followed by his loyal subjects and various animals from the Bali Safari & Marine Park.

    Other animals, including tigers, camels, pythons, eagles and many exotic birds, appear on stage, and in the air, during the performance. A similar episode shows several exotic animals disembarking from the Chinese vessel which lands on Bali’s shores for trade with the Balinese king, one of the central characters.

    The mega-stage features specially designed props, curtains and water cannons that combine to bring spectacle and dramatic effect to the whole storytelling.

    Good to Know about Bali Agung

    Bali Agung runs for an hour, and starts at 14:00 daily, except Mondays. The show is narrated in English; however the audience is able to read short narrations in selected languages before the performance.

    Nevertheless, the spectacular show is strong in visual aspects through motion, colours and sound. Those watching with young kids might reconsider the duration of the show, and to opt for seating within the Bali Theatre that is not too close to the stage and river pond.
