OFFENBACH

Jacques Offenbach wasn’t just the «inventor of operetta»; his music was a Parisian tabloid – gossip and satire on the grandees of the Second Empire. Offenbach’s fans came from the haute bourgeoisie and the underworld; they adored the rousing music of «La Périchole» and «The Tales of Hoffmann». Les Musiciens du Louvre and Sébastien Rouland bring Offenbach’s music directly from France to the Wolkenturm.
