The historic Morristown Green has seen its share of epic struggles over the centuries.

Another one unfolded on Tuesday– and we’re not talking about Supreme Court nominations.

Ramayana: Abduction of Sita, a fabled Hindu story of Good vs. Evil, was performed by the BALAM Dance Theatre for an intrigued lunchtime crowd.

Rapt onlookers included Goldie, a 13-year-old Maltipoo who recently celebrated her Bark-Mitzvah at the Morristown Deli.

“She likes everything,” said Goldie’s companion, Deborah Bernstein of Rockaway.

The colorful spectacle was courtesy of the free summer series Music Beyond Borders, presented by Morris Arts and the Mayo Performing Arts Center on the historic Morristown Green.
