Jacob Offenbach better known as Jacque Offenbach was a German-born French composer and cellist born on June 20, 1819 in Cologne, Germany and died on October 5, 1880 in Paris. His family moved in Paris in 1833 where he named himself as Jacque. Offenbach attended the Paris Conservatory for a short period. He had to give up his studies due to the financial problems. However, this was not an obstacle for his career. He found a job in the orchestra of the Opera-Comique and soon he established himself as a cello virtuoso. Later he married daughter of the Spanish Ambassador and presumably he converted to Catholicism. In 1855 he opened his own theater Bouffes-Parisiens where he produces his operettas he is so famous for. However, when there was a war between France and Germany, he was criticized by the French for being a Bismarck agent and was criticized by the Germans for being a traitor.
