Pageant of the Masters
The Pageant of the Masters is arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world. Audiences are amazed by 90 minutes of tableaux vivants ("living pictures"), incredibly faithful re-creations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. An outdoor amphitheater, 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. The 2019 theme, “The Time Machine,” will take audiences around the globe and into the past, present, and future in search of great art and amazing stories. Taking its cues from science fiction and steampunk fantasies, “The Time Machine” will be a ticket to thrills, laughter, beautiful music, and extraordinary living art under the stars. A Pageant ticket entitles one to free, unlimited admission to the Festival of Arts grounds all summer long.
