Siti Zubaidah is one of the traditional drama performance of Palembang-Sumatera Selatan. Art of Siti Zubaidah contains cultural values that are very useful in developing the character of the surrounding community. The emergence of drama performance Siti Zubaidah caused by the desire of performing artists to new variations from Dulmuluk, especially from the aspect of the story. Siti Zubaidah is one of the Malay poems written by Abdullah Munshi. Poem Siti Zubaidah is from Malay in 1840 (1256 Hijri) (Fang, 1993, p.134) and it consists of 3822 stanzas (Yulita, 1997, p.24). It is seven years earlier than lyric Abdul Muluk which is published in 1847 (Fang in Nurhayati, 2016). This poem is classified as a literary genre because it is in the form of a story Nur Zai (Nurhayati, Soetopo, Inderawati, and Ratnawati, 2016). Therefore, Siti Zubaidah's poem is appointing as a base story drama performance. However, Nurhayati (2017) found that the artists suggested that the time allocation for performing Siti Zubaidah was limited to 1 hour. Their reason was that the staging of Siti Zubaidah commonly performed by traditional artists by following the storyline of the poem from the beginning to the end took place 3 days. The duration of staging based on the storyline was divided into three parts, namely part I (stanzas 1 to 1197), part II (stanzas 1198 to 1669), and part III (stanzas 1670 to 3822). Each part needs all night from 20:30 to 03.00. Consequently, the staging duration needs to be revitalized by shortening the story as necessary (one hour at the most) so that the audience does not get bored. Next, to improve Siti Zubaidah drama performance we also as a writer should preserve Siti Zubaidah in this modern era because young generation should be involved and they are the ones who will be going to share and tell it in the future; otherwise, it will stay virtually unknown for the next generation (Nurhayati, Subadiyono, and Suhendi, 2014; Inderawati & Nurhayati, 2017)
