What about the development of the arja operetta in North Bali, especially in Buleleng? The arja of Buleleng was formerly growing rapidly at several villages in North Bali. In Buleleng it had reached its former glory and could compete against the arja operetta troupe in South Bali. Unfortunately, the art has been buried since the 1970s as a result of losing competitiveness against the drama gong that was growing rapidly in South Bali at that time.
Now, the figures and the artists on the Land of Panji Sakti are moved to revive the art of the arja operetta. One of them is Putu Raksa. He tried to revive the arja in Buleleng. As a result, the Manik Sari arja operetta troupe from Delod Margi hamlet, Mekar Sari village, Buleleng, was born in 2013.
When talking about performing arts, our mind will be surely pointed to Puaya hamlet, Batuan Kelod village, Sukawati subdistrict, Gianyar. It happens because the village poses the center of all the knick-knacks related to performing arts, ranging from dance, puppet show to barong. Almost all the local people are living as artisan, costume makers, puppet maker, mask maker and barong artisan.
One of them is I Ketut Daweg. The man of Gianyar-born in 1949 is a puppeteer doubling as a puppet craftsman. In daily life, Daweg continuously makes puppet crafts. He carves cowhide into a two-dimensional artwork. “Making puppets have become my daily work to earn living,” he said.
One of the attractions drawing travelers to come to Bali is the culture of local people. An old performing art as a part of the culture is the arja operetta. This arja is estimated to have been popular in the 1820s, during the reign of the King of Klungkung. Arja is a kind of Balinese operetta with dialogue, singing a song and dance drama in the form of macepat. Towards the end of the twentieth century was born Arja Muani where all the players are men. It only partially portrays women. This arja is welcomed very enthusiastically by society at that time because the entertainment presented is a fresh comedy.
