Expert Answer:

In Merchant of Venice, masquerade refers to torchlight procession where the performers play musical instruments wearing masks or vizards to disguise themselves. Every masquerade needs a torch bearer who will be at its forefront. The actual purpose of having a torch-bearer in the scene is to facilitate the elopement of Jessica with Lorenzo.
