Story

The Georges Seurat painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" serves as the inspiration for this musical fantasy celebrating the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half, set in 1884, sees the painting and its rich comic tapestry come to life in a world where, for Georges, art comes before love, before everything. In the second half, set in 1980s New York, we see the great grandson of Georges and his search for inspiration in the world of contemporary art.
