I fear I must beg to differ. Da Ponte wrote the truly great and witty libretto for Don Giovanni and I think his reputation is safe enough. He had what appears to have had rather an interesting life - he started out Jewish, became a Catholic priest, ceased so to be, wrote libretti for Mozart and ended up dying in New York. That's off the top of my head, so don't chide me for getting the details wrong. I beseech you to give him a second chance!

Only on your say so, 'H', but 'Cosi' is a very bleak tale.
