Venanzio Rauzzini lived in Bath from 1779 to 1810. A hugely successful singer, he was also a distinguished composer and his opera Piramo e Tisbe was very popular in his lifetime. It is paired with music by Charles Dibdin and William Herschel who, following a period as a musician in Bath, went on to discover Uranus and become Astronomer Royal!
