This chapter follows the career of Marco Faustini at three different Venetian theaters: S. Aponal, S. Cassiano, and SS. Giovanni e Paolo (the most prestigious theater of its time) between the years 1651 and 1668. Marco Faustini began to participate in opera production after the death of his brother, the librettist Giovanni Faustini, who had previously rented the Teatro S. Moisè, and then S. Aponal. Throughout his years as an impresario, he was helped by a variety of men, the patricians Alvise Duodo and Marc Antonio Correr, and, for a time, the cittadini Bortolo Pasinetti and Polifilo Zancarli; over the years, Faustini built up a reliable network of artisans, recruiters, and top-notch singers. Although Faustini worked with a variety of composers, he most frequently turned to Francesco Cavalli and Pietro Andrea Ziani.
