Grab a Partner and Go Behind the Scenes to Witness Art Come to Life

DANA POINT, Calif. – March 23, 2016 – Highlighting this year’s Pageant of the Masters theme, Partners, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is partnering with the Pageant of the Masters to present two extraordinary overnight experiences for the 2016 season. Both experiences include two premiere seats in the center loge section for the world-famous performance and admission for two to the renowned Festival of Arts.

The history of art is filled with stories of solitary artists abandoning society to pursue their creative expression. The 2016 Pageant of the Masters sets out in search of stories of compelling collaborations that led to the creation of unforgettable artworks in this summer’s presentation of “Partners.” Filled with provocative and passionate tales of some of art’s dynamic duos – artists and patrons, models, muses, even dance partners, be sure to bring someone special with you, as “Partners” pulls back the curtain to reveal the significant others without whom the creation of great masterpieces might not have been possible.

Behind the Velvet Rope offers an exclusive opportunity for guests to see how this grand production comes together behind the curtain and offers a peek into the mystery of how art comes to life. The experience also affords guests to rub elbows with the artists while on a private docent tour of the Festival of Arts. Behind the Velvet Rope starts at $1,999 per couple, per night and includes:

  • The Ritz-Carlton Club Level Ocean View Accommodations
