Johann Jacob Heidegger
John James Heidegger , actually Johann Jacob Heidegger (born June 16, 1659 in Zurich , † September 7, 1749 in Richmond upon Thames ) was an impresario in London .
Heidegger was a son of the theologian Johann Heinrich Heidegger . He went to England around 1708 and appeared as assistant director of the Queen's Theater in 1710 , where he held scandalous masked balls . From 1713 to 1738 he was commercial director of the now renamed King's Theater, from 1719 to 1728 director of the Royal Academy of Music , the opera company for which George Frideric Handel , Giovanni Battista Bononcini and Attilio Ariosti composed.
In 1738, Heidegger withdrew from the capital London to the nearby town of Richmond upon Thames until his death in 1749 , where in 1910 a “room decorated with all sorts of Swiss landscapes” reminded of Heidegger in a house on Maids of Honor Row .
In Shepherd's Bush , Richmond upon Thames, today Greater London , the “Heidegger Crescent” street is named after the famous resident of the past.
