In merchant of venice
Who are torch bearers and what is masquerade

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.
