Opera Jawa, also known as Requiem from Java, is a critically acclaimed, award-winning musical from director Garin Nugroho. It was created for the 2006 New Crowned Hope Festival in Vienna, which celebrated the 250th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Mozart. It is a film adaptation of "The Abduction of Sita" from an ancient Hindu epic poem, the Ramayana. Siti (Artika Sari Devi) and Setio (Martinus Miroto) were once married dancers famous for reenacting the tale of Sita and Prince Rama, two lovers ripped apart by an evil king. Siti and Setio now sell earthenware pottery instead of taking the stage, but they suddenly find that their real life is mimicking the fantasy tale that they once told. Ludiro (Eko Supriyanto), a wealthy businessman, wants Siti to be his own, and he will do anything in his power to make that happen. This culturally rich film includes techniques like Javanese song, Indonesian gamelan music, and wayang shadow puppets to portray the heated love triangle between Siti, Setio, and Ludiro.moreless
