Jacques Offenbach (1819 - 1880) was a French composer, impresario and cellist during the romantic period. He is most remembered for producing almost 100 operettas during the 1850s and 1870s, and for "The Tales of Hoffmann", his uncompleted opera. Offenbach had a significant influence on many notable composers, including Johann Strauss, Jr. and Arthur Sullivan. His most famous works experienced continual revival in the 20th century, and many of his compositions are still performed to this day.
