English playwright and manager noted for his attempt to meld English and Italian operatic conventions. William Collier appointed Hill manager of Drury Lane at the age of 24. Whether he actually wrote the libretto of "Rinaldo" in English or designed the plot for 'Giacomo Rossi' and then translated Rossi's libretto is uncertain.
