)-- In the Footsteps of Offenbach
Kultur is proud to announce the DVD release of In the Footsteps of Offenbach available September 25, 2012.
Light operetta, farce and entertainment are all synonymous with Jacques Offenbach. French Can-Can is practically his theme song. And yet Offenbach himself never saw the Can-Can danced! What story lies behind this unique composer.
Musicologist and conductor Jean-Christophe Keck follows Offenbach’s ambitious journey across Europe’s theatres and into the hearts of 19th-century audiences.
Keck shows how Offenbach established himself as a comedy genius, and also how the frothy frills hide a great opera composer.
