The Pageant of the Masters is an event held each year by the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, California. This unique event features tableaux vivant, "living pictures," in which well-known works of art are reproduced on a larger scale and real people stand in for the figures in the artwork. The recreations are stunningly similar to the originals thanks to carefully crafted costumes, makeup, lighting, and props. The Pageant consists of 90-minute exhibits of these artistic scenes accompanied by narration, an orchestra, and period-appropriate songs sung by trained vocalists; the addition of music further immerses audiences in the world of the artwork.
Since 1933, The Pageant of the Masters has been held for eight weeks each summer (with the exception of a four-year hiatus during World War II). This nonprofit event is put on by a small staff and hundreds of volunteers with a passion for the arts, and in recent years, it has attracted over a quarter of a million attendees annually. This event is nothing short of a pop-culture phenomenon; get your Pageant of the Masters tickets right away and become part of the experience!
