Now I Know!

When the Italian composer Luigi Arditi (1822-1903), who was famous  opera conductor, once visited England, the kind hosts wanted to show him the sights.

One of Arditi’s friends suggested that they visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

       - It would be a shame for you to leave England, and not go to Stratford-upon-Avon where Shakespeare was born - said to him the musician.
       - But, who was this Shakespeare of yours? - Arditi asked the stunned hosts.
       - Have you not heard of "Othello," "Romeo and Juliet" ...
       - Ah, yes! - the musician hit himself on the forehead. - Now I remember! Of course I know him! He is that libretto writer!
