Pageant of the Masters
- By Cynthia Lum
The Pageant of the Masters is one of the most unique live art productions in the world. Each evening of the Festival of Arts summer schedule, audiences are amazed and enchanted by ninety minutes of incredibly faithful recreations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces.
Presented in a bucolic outdoor amphitheater, with professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant of the Masters as the best presentation of its kind. This year’s theme, “Made in America” will highlight the artists, revolutionaries, innovators, and dreamers who not only made this country their home, but let their creativity be inspired by the freedoms upon which this nation was founded. Through their lives, artworks and voices, a compelling portrait of our artists will come to life with all the theatrical magic that makes the Pageant a one-of-a-kind, must-see summer tradition.
Ticket holders will also enjoy unlimited access to the Festival of Arts fine Art Show all summer long. Set in a beautiful open-air gallery, this highly acclaimed show features the work of over 100 award winning Orange County artists. From paintings, glass, ceramics, photography and more the Festival showcases a variety of mediums and artwork styles for avid collectors and festival goers to browse and purchase directly from the artists.
