Ramayana (2012)
Romance! Action! Suspense! Come along for the ride as we bring one of South and South East Asia's greatest and most beloved epics to life. Ramayana tells the engrossing story of Rama, a young hero on a quest to rescue his beautiful wife from an evil king. Like all great stories, it delivers riveting entertainment while posing essential questions about the human condition. Perfect for the whole family, sumptuously staged with vivid costumes, fantastical sets, and re-imagined environments, Ramayana is an eye-popping roller coaster of a show of mythical proportions – and unlike anything you've ever seen in Seattle!
