This musical is marvelous and proudly Made in Malaysia. It has been
tour around the world for more than 10 years. The ancient Indian
culture is represent lively again. It was perform in mandarin with
English subtitles. From a upper circle seat at Istana Budaya, RM68 is
just too bargain for two hours of world class musical performance. I
love it so much and stolen few shots from stage. It is no doubt for me
to watch it over again.
