The Festival of the Arts of Laguna Beach is a spectacular show in itself, but the Pageant of the Masters is the “crowning jewel” of the festival. Each night at 8:30 p.m. through Aug. 31, a 90-minute stage show will commence. This show boasts re-creations of classic and contemporary paintings, using real people in costume to replicate these masterpieces. The way the costumes are designed and make-up applied really captures the nuances of the original art, and is a delightful and fun way to appreciate art. This pageant takes place in the outdoor amphitheater accompanied by an orchestra and live narration. This world-renowned show is not to be missed, as it is truly one of a kind.
Though this is a yearly event, this year The Pageant of the Masters theme is The Big Picture. With a cinematic twist on the art that inspired famous film-makers, this nod to old Hollywood will impress viewers of all ages.
