In a faraway land lives a Princess, as beautiful and flawed as any other princess, only this princess has legs of pure glass. She loves to dance: her glass legs are light and nimble, and refract a thousand colours as she twirls and glides. But she dances alone. The ladies of the court scorn her precise movements. The princes and ambassadors intimidate her with their muscular thighs and robust leaping. Her only friend is the Little Fool, a jester clad in white and black with golden bells. Male or female: no one has ever been entirely sure; but innocent and kindly, all agree, although not without a hint of the mysterious.
One rather ordinary day, the Princess finds the Little Fool has left her a note:
"Please come to the walled garden. I have made something for you".
When the Princess arrives at the garden, she finds a miracle: a palace made entirely from rain. Falling droplets form domes, turrets, gates and windows. A sheer curtain of water forms the main door. There is no sign of the Little Fool.
Should she go in alone or wait for the Fool?
