You'll be surrounded by tourists, so when you set up your visit (with your hotel or your driver), try to pick a time (early in the day) when the crowds are smaller. Trust me, you want to GET CLOSE to this performance. The closer the better!Warning: if you don't take the time to read up on the basic story, it will just be colorful noise: lots of jumping, yelling, and acting out. But when you understand the story, you'll catch a critical aspect of the Barong character. He's a BAD DUDE: bad-looking and bad-tempered. There's nothing nice about him at all.And if you need to defeat pure evil, you better have a REALLY BAD DUDE on your side!
