Directed by Candide Carrasco, professor of foreign languages at Nazareth, Barcarolle shows the time of year when anyone, no matter who they are, can become someone else. The power of a mask is amazing; hiding the true person behind. Or does it? Is it possible that a mask is only a means of seeing who we truly are? Each character will be touched by the magic of the poet, Paolo, the loving hands of Venice, and the swift strike of Cupid’s Arrow. What will happen, then, when the Carnival revelers are faced with their true selves? What will happen when Venice, the beautiful city on the sea, is thrown into the path of grave dangers? Will the gods be able to find humans willing to give their lives for the city and its people? Only time will tell.
