The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Laguna Niguel, and The Pageant Of The Masters, have partnered to create an exclusive luxury package for this summer’s most talked about event.
The Ritz-Carlton chose to continue to embrace Laguna Beach’s artistic lifestyle, with the debut of two exclusive overnight experiences, showcasing the 86th Annual “Pageant of the Masters”. These packages are most ideal for art enthusiasts or travelers visiting Orange County, who seek a unique, cultural and luxury experience.
The packages: “The Time Machine” and “Behind the Velvet Rope” are available starting July 7 to August 31, 2019. Both packages include premier seats in the loge center section, at the performance.
The Time Machine theme was created to transport the audience around the globe into the past, present, and future in search of great art and amazing stories. Unlike anything else, guests will experience one of the most unique productions in the world, watching incredible recreations of classical and contemporary works of art come to life, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces.
Pageant of the Masters Director, Diane Challis Davy, stated “To say that this is a very different ‘pageant’ is an understatement! It’s surprising how difficult it is to weave a storyline that incorporates elements of sci-fi, fantasy and real art history. Months ago, we imagined a story in the spirit of H.G. Wells – the characters, their adventures – and we have done everything we can to bring that fantasy to life, to make it fun, intriguing and poignant. I would tell our audiences who’ve seen the Pageant before to prepare yourselves for an imaginative adventure, a plotline from start to finish, and a very surprising finale.”
The performance is located in an outdoor amphitheater with a professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, and sophisticated lighting. It is simply amazing, and to understand it, one MUST see it!
