Cultural Evening at Hotel Tugu Bali : Calon Arang

Calon Arang dance-drama is based on the legend of Rangda (Calon Arang) with her struggle between the great king Airlangga. Calon Arang resided in Girah village and was feared for her black magic and shunned her beautiful daughter Ratna Manggali. It was said that when Calon Arang learned about the ill-treatment experienced by her daughter, she unleashed an epidemic so powerful that it nearly decimated the human population of Kahuripan. Airlangga sent his fiercest generals to confront Calon Arang but they all met their demise at the hands of the widow and a handful of her exclusively female followers. 

Airlangga later sought the help of Mpu Bharadah, a powerful priest, who sent his disciple Mpu Bahula to win Ratna Manggali'€™s heart. Bahula eventually married Ratna Manggali, an act that provided him with access to Calon Arang'€™s books of spells. He stole the books and gave them to Bharadah. Using the knowledge he gained from the books, Bharadah defeated Calon Arang in a battle.

Balinese dance is beautiful and unique, and is closely connected to religious rituals. Traditional dances are an integral part of Balinese Life.
