Pride of Laguna Beach, California: Pageant of the Masters

Posted By Roxy On August 22, 2008 @ 9:00 am In Art and Culture, Events | 2 Comments

[1] One year, instead of taking our annual family┬átrip to California in February, Rex and I would like to take the girls to┬áLaguna Beach in late July or August, in order to attend the [2] Pageant of the Masters, a really cool event that I haven’t been to in years, since Rex and I travelled to the West Coast on business. The web site describes it as “ninety minutes of living pictures - incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works 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 as the best presentation of its kind.” The first time I went, over 10 years ago, I was skeptical. I was picturing an Edward Hopper “painting” with a couple of actors hanging around a pool table, but the way to think about it is people as the pixels of the painting.
