Offenbach Return to List of Composers
Jacques Offenbach was born in Germany in 1819. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1880. Offenbach

Jacques Offenbach  (1819-1880) was born in Koln, Germany, where he learned the cello.  His family moved to Paris, France when Jacques was 14 years old. He joined the Paris Conservatoire. He then earned his living as a cellist. He performed for Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle in 1844.   As he lived the rest of his life in France, and died in Paris, he is usually thought of as a French composer.

In 1855 he started composing for the theatre, and he himself managed a theatre just off the Champs-�lys�es.  He achieved great success with his operettas, and toured to London, and later to USA.  He wrote the operettas Orpheus in the UnderworldThe Tales of Hoffmann, and La Belle H�l�ne.
