Visitors to Bali should not miss the Bali Agung show, located at the Bali Theatre at the Bali Safari and Marine Park.
In what can be described as a World Class cabaret show for its grandeur and splendour, the Bali Agung show tells the story of the legend of a Balinese Goddesses from the 12th-century, King Jaya Pangus, who marries a Chinese Princess, Kang Cing Wie.
Although Bali Agung is essentially a visual show, the audience is guided by an English speaking narrator to help visitors better understand the story.
The show features 150 dancers, 40 puppets, and more than 30 animals including ten elephants at one mega stage measuring 80 X 40 meters which evoke the colourful and varied environments of the story.
Local puppet makers worked on tiny birds, Wayang Kulit shadow puppets and giant monsters that are featured in the show.
The Dancers adorn unique headdresses and spectacular costumes and even the larger animals are dressed in colourful livery to further enhance this extraordinary production.
Performances are Fridays, Saturdays ang Sundays starting from 2.30pm onwards.
