The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Presents Two Exclusive Pageant of the Masters Packages

DANA POINT, Calif. – February 22, 2018 – The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel proudly presents two extraordinary overnight experiences showcasing the 85th Anniversary of the Pageant of the Masters – BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE and UNDER THE SUN. As a long-time Pageant of the Masters sponsor, the resort’s exclusive packages to the world-famous performance of “art that lives and breathes” include premier seats located in the loge center section.

The 2018 theme for Pageant of the Masters is “UNDER THE SUN.” In the early years of the 20th century, a new generation of impressionists and plein air painters set up their easels outdoors and reveled in the natural beauty to be found as far as the eye could see. In this year’s show, theatrical magic, live music and light-hearted storytelling will honor Laguna’s own and other artistic pioneers from around the world who left their studios in search of new inspiration.

The Pageant of the Masters “UNDER THE SUN” experience starts at $899 per night and includes:

  • Overnight accommodations
  • Two Premier Loge Center tickets to the Pageant of the Masters stage performance
  • Admission for two to Festival of Arts, one of the nation’s oldest and most highly acclaimed juried fine art shows
