➤ After breakfast proceed for The Barong and Keris dance, which is one of the Island’s Most Iconic Dance-Drama. It brings the 12th-century classical tale of good versus evil known as Calon Arang to life on stage. The Barong, a benevolent spirit in a beastly form must protect a kingdom against the vengeful wrath of the widow and witch queen, Rangda. In Balinese mythology, Barong is a prominent character taken the form of a lion, regarded as the King of the Spirits who represents Virtue. Barong is seen as ‘a guardian angel’. Opposing Good is represented by another mythical creature called Rangda (‘widow’ in Javanese), the Queen of Demons. Rangda leads an army of evil witches against the leader of the forces of Good. As a mirror of life, the Barong Dance portrays the two characters involved in a never-ending battle.
