WPC – Mahakarya Borobudur Colossal Dance Performance


Around the celebration of Indonesia Independence Day in 2014, my husband and I were lucky being among the audiences to watch Mahakarya Borobudur, the annual spectacular Javanese dance performance at the Aksobya, open air theater of Borobudur temple. This colossal dance performance usually entitled with the theme ‘When History Comes to Life’ presented the construction history of the majestic temple involving more than 200 dancers in traditional costumes and a full gamelan orchestra with amazing Borobudur at night as the background.

  1. Saya suka Candi Borobudur yang disinari cahaya dari belakangnya itu Mbak–tampak sangat magis. Kalau soal tariannya menurut saya mesti disaksikan secara langsung ya supaya dinamikanya berasa :hehe. Hm, tapi saya selalu mengantuk kalau menonton sendratari :haha… eh tapi sendratarinya ini diselenggarakan setiap hari nggak sih Mbak?

    • Benar sekali mas, tidak terbayangkan untuk pengaturan yang begitu rapi. Sebenarnya ada scene juga yang mengisahkan kehidupan sehari-hari, jadi ditampilkan petani dan peternak lengkap dengan bebek, ayam dan kambing-kambingnya (hidup) menjadi bagian dari acara. seru jadinya…
