The Pageant of the Masters is arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world. This uber-creative, one-of-a-kind show combines theater, performance art and art history. Each evening during the summer season, classic and contemporary works of art are faithfully re-created with theatrical illusion and real people posing as living pictures. A live narrator serves as a guide through the story of each re-creation accompanied by the music of a professional orchestra.
This year’s Pageant theme is “The Grand Tour.” In the 17th and 18th centuries, the desire to experience the world’s great art firsthand inspired the European tradition of continental travel on the Grand Tour. Inspired to set out on pilgrimages by land and sea to the great cultural centers of Europe, and eventually the globe, those early travelers often risked life and limb to stand in the presence of masterpieces. A ticket to the 2017 Pageant of the Masters becomes a passport to experience spectacle, music, stories and grand illusions as famous artworks come to life.
