Pageant of the Masters During the late summer of each year, art literally comes to life in Laguna Beach! For 90 minutes during the Pageant of the Masters, “living pictures” can be viewed at this spectacular event. You do not want to miss the re-creations of classical and contemporary works with REAL people posing exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. Held in a gorgeous outdoor amphitheater with a professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers, you will see why the Pageant of the Masters has won recognition for being the best presentation of its kind.
