Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice is a dark disturbing love story that explores the crisis that results when man's hunger for an object or person exceeds reasonable risk; when the human heart is blinded by its own desire.  By combining the classic Italian cinema silhouettes of the 1960s, the luxurious ornamentation of the Baroque era and inspired by the always stylish Dolce and Gabbana we created a look reflected of Shakespeare's lager than life characters and the Italian life style.  The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare, CalArts March 2014, Director Mary Lou Rosato
