About the Pageant

In 2014 the Pageant of the Masters, themed The Art  Detective, will reveal how lost treasures were discovered, where crimes of passion were uncovered (or covered up) and how creative riddles were unraveled, with a gallery of the world’s great masterpieces providing the clues. Pageant Director Diane Challis Davy has reintroduced themes, occasional live singers and other theatrical gestures to her Pageants. As a result, the Pageant has become more fluid, with seamless transitions often performed in full view of the audience. Other technical advances have provided some of the Pageant’s most memorable moments. What is it?  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.
