The Nazareth College Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures will present Diabolo, an original, multilingual play by the department’s chairperson, Dr. Candide Carrasco. The show runs March 1-2, 2013 at 8 p.m., in Callahan Theater at Nazareth College Arts Center. Diabolo will be performed in English, with some French, Spanish, and Italian. The 80-minute performance is suggested for children ages 11+ and their families.
Diabolo tells the story of a little prince who no one understands because he is different, and a community of tiny people living on his chandelier who welcome him into their realm: Lady Maravilla, the good hearted spider; the King of Hearts; Luciernaga, a tiny firefly learning to dance; two butterflies who carry messages between the two worlds; and the mischievous Diabolo, a valiant little man who will not give up the fight to save the lost prince and his dog, Pepito, from the shadows of their palace.
Overall, Diabolo is a story about the pain felt by people who are different, and the celebration of how to overcome the darkest obstacles through friendship, love, and the search for beauty.
