The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Creates Pageant of the Masters Packages

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel has debuted two new overnight experiences showcasing the 85th Anniversary of the Pageant of the Masters art festival: “Behind the Velvet Rope” and “Under the Sun.” As a long-time Pageant of the Masters sponsor, the resort’s exclusive packages to the famous performance of “art that lives and breathes” include premier seats located in the loge center section and behind-the-scenes access.

The 2018 theme for Pageant of the Masters is “Under the Sun," inspired by early 20th century impressionists and "plein air" painters that set up their easels outdoors and worked outside of their studio. In this year’s show, theatrical performances, live music and storytelling will honor Laguna’s own artistic pioneers, plus others from around the world.

The Pageant of the Masters “Under the Sun” experience starts at $899 per night and includes:
