Today, Italian teachers, Mrs. Hoerle and Mrs. Gentile, along with the Burlington High School Foreign Language Department welcomed a performance called “Aria di Commedia” by the PazziLazzi troupe. The skits performed by the PazziLazzi are in the style of the Italian Commedia dell’Arte. All of the masks, however, are typical of Carnevale which is celebrated in many countries. The show itself was in English, but there were times when the actors broke into Italian and Spanish (depending on the character they play).
Pazzi Lazzi is a professional Commedia dell’Arte troupe, native to the Boston area. The company strives both to educate and entertain its audience. All members of the troupe play several characters, of both genders.
