Product Description

Inspired by 'The Abduction of Sita' from the ancient Indian and South East-Asian literary classic The Ramayana, OPERA JAWA is a unique musical tale of love, lust and tragedy. Setio and his wife Siti, own a pottery business in a small village ran by Ludiro, a powerful and ruthless businessman. Ludiro, who is in love with Siti, seizes his chance when the couple's business collapses. He abducts and tries to seduce Siti. The two men fight and inevitably jealousy spills over into violence and tragedy. Utilising the genius of Indonesia's greatest artists, director Garin Nugroho has collected together the finest talents in the fields of art, music, design and dance to create an incredible and entirely unique experience. An ecstatic, surreal musical extravaganza, OPERA JAWA is unlike anything ever seen before in cinema.

Again, I am using bits and pieces of this video for my mythology class, so I am using only what I needed. It was a video I needed, not necessarily one I wanted or would go out and buy for myself.
