“A fascinating history of Lorenzo da Ponte (1749 - 1838). Born to Jewish parents in Venice (his father converted to Roman Catholicism), he became an opera librettist and poet. He wrote the libretti for 28 operas by 11 composers, including three of Mozart's greatest operas, DON GIOVANNI, THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO and COSÌ FAN TUTTE.”
