In an elaboration of classical poetry and the designing of a whole legend's presentation in a summarized form, guru Bhagavatula Sethuram choreographed a Kuchipudi dance ballet titled 'Ramayanam'. "Bhavayami Raghuramam", the refined song of the 18th century poet Swathi Tirunal set to a string of melodies like Kalyani, Bilahari and Sahana, illustrated varied epics of the Ramayana. Based on the same, over six dancers dramatized the scenic illustrations.

Sethuram is basically from the traditional family of Kuchipudi Bhagavatars, whose specialty lies in their 'Rama Natakam' play. This present production was an extension of the same. Only, to suite the modern theater, guru Sethuram stylized it in a musical frame.

Commencing with the varied stories of the young valorous brothers and their magnanimous actions and proceeding on to their adventures in the jungles, the wedding of Rama and Sita, and the culmination with the battle at Lanka, the one-and-half-hour ballet moulded itself into an aesthetic form of continuous action and drama. Sucharita, Sajani, Smita, Sandhya, Daya, Srikanth and Sirisha were the dancers donned in Kuchipudi 'Aharya' to carry out the narrative. Sethuram conducted the play with his support of cymbals, while vocalists D V S Sastry and Sweta, percussionist Vinod Kumar, flutist Ananta Krishna, violinist Sai Kumar and keyboard player Brahmanandam comprised the musical group.
