Lucentio (Cambio)

Taming the Shrew

Meet the Character

Lucentio is a rich kid who travels to Padua to top off his education and "see the world." His plans to study and make his family proud are quickly abandoned when he spots Bianca and falls in love with her obedience to her father and her silence. Soon he forgets all about his studies and begins to gush about his burning passion for Bianca.

Lucentio and his Wife

Lucentio appears to be very crafty as he disguises himself as a tutor ("Cambio") and gets into Baptista's house where he has access to Bianca. Bianca and Lucentio eventually fall in love and elope. But he soon realizes she is a "shrew" and has absolutely no control over his young, beautiful wife.
