Performed each night in the Irvine Bowl by the Pageant orchestra, live music remains a key part of the theatrical magic of this 78-year-old presentation of "art that lives and breathes."
From the mythological legends of ancient Greece to evocations of classic stories of buried treasure, spooky encounters and the simple pleasures of playing dress-up, the 2011 Pageant promises no shortage of fantasy fun for the entire family.
This year's pageant opens with Charles Buchel's 1904 Lithograph, "PETER PAN AND WENDY".
Virginia Sterrett's ARABIAN NIGHTS are presented, as well Sir John Tenniel's wood block prints from ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
