Pageant of the Masters

Pageant of the Masters

Arguably one of the most unique events in the world, this eye-popping pageant from 7th July- 31st August 2016 presents tableaux vivants (“living pictures”), ultra-detailed recreations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original artworks. It is world-renown in the artistry and theatrical illusion of living pictures. Each night during the summer season at 8.30, the Festival of Arts presents this famous attraction.

An outdoor amphitheatre, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert service, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant as the best presentation of its kind.

Always a sell-out several months in advance, this unforgettable outdoor event at Laguna Beach, Orange County, is a nice nod to the artistic roots of this well-heeled coastal enclave, which started as an artist’s colony back in the early 1900s.
