An unprecedented gamelan and dance performance! Our Saturday evening show, Javanese Classics, showcases our guest musicians, four of the world’s most respected contemporary Javanese gamelan musicians: I.M. Harjito, Midiyanto, Djoko Walujo, and Darsono Hadiraharjo, in an evening of Javanese classical music and dance. Experience world-class artistry in a program featuring the meditative long-form gendhing, which will highlight the skills of our visiting musicians. This program will also feature classical dances, including the elegant court gambyong dance and the masked topeng dance, with distinguished guest dancers Wisnu Wicaksono and Baghawan Ciptoning as the epic character Klono and his impish antagonist. Never before has such an illustrious group of gamelan musicians been gathered on a Twin Cities stage. This is one concert not to miss!
