First, a disclosure: this is the first ballet show I've watched.
We were in grade school when the first Rama Sita was staged by Ballet Philippines in 1980 with Basil Valdez as Rama, Kuh Ledesma as Sita, and Leo Valdez as the evil demon Ravana.
I've watched the adaptations of the Hindu epic Ramayana twice in Indonesia: first in the Pramayana Ramayana Ballet in Yogyakarta, and the Kecak Dance version in Uluwatu in Bali. I wonder how different Rama Hari would be.
I thought that Rama Hari is another one of those hyped up star-studded musicals but I was wrong.
We were literally blown away by the beautiful ballet dance choreography and the powerful tagalog musical score.
