Legong & Barong Dance
The Barong is a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, often depicted as a lion. The Legong (a style of traditional Balinese dance) and Barong is probably the most well known performance on the island. It is another storytelling dance, narrating the fight between good and evil. This dance is the classic example of the Balinese way of acting out mythology, resulting in myth and history being blended into one reality. A printed guide is provided for each performance so guests can follow along with the story.
