Considering the amount of foreign tourists coming to watch the show, it would be nice if they can provide at least a brief script of the play and not just the plot of the story so we can appreciate it better. I honestly cant say...More

The costumes were fine, the dance ok and the acting really bad and the show is too long ( one hours) I think they can tell the same story in 20 or 25 minutes. There is a lot of waste of time and bad jokes....More

These dancers are great to watch. They have very exact movements especially with their eyes. The costumes were superb.

We have visited this on our guided tour of the area. The dance is fairly long and if you are not into local culture you may get bored of it a little. We have stayed the entire show and have enjoyed taking some colourful photographs,...More
