Lorenzo Da Ponte (1749–1838) wrote the words for 28 operas by 11 composers, including three of Mozart's greatest - Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro and Così fan tutte. But this librettist's own life was scandalous enough to make an opera in its own right.
Most of Da Ponte's works were adaptations of pre-existing plots with the exception of 'Così', which he began with Salieri, but completed with Mozart. Pictured is the 2006 Victorian Opera production of 'Cosi' at Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne.
