You will accompany Jack on a tour conducted by an unlikely museum guide, and learn a spellbinding story narrated by Jacquelyn, a young aspiring ballerina brought to life in a painting by the famous painter. First startling and then winning Jack’s attention, Jacquelyn leads him down a wall of Degas paintings that reveal her quest to win the role most coveted by a young dancer, the part of the Rose Princess, performed by a great professional ballet company. What follows transforms Jack’s life, and may forever change how you look at art.
