The Italian opera composer Lauro Rossi was born on 19 February 1810 in Macerata and died on 5 May 1885 in Cremona. His output includes the operas La casa disabitata (revised as I falsi monetary), La Contessa di Mons, Cleopatra and Il Domino Nero. He was well known at the end of the nineteenth century, and considered a potential successor to Verdi. He had a strong flair for comic opera and opera buffa, and was also director of the conservatories in Milan and later Naples.
