Pity there was no-one else around to fight Offenbach's corner when the thread started, if only to counter the rather smugly off-hand responses by two since long-gone members.

OK, accusations can be hurled at Offenbach for being a bread-and-circuses composer who was probably far too prolific for his own creative good, but I've never heard comic opera that makes me smile as much as Offenbach's does when he was on good form, and there are at least four of his works for the stage that deserve to remain evergreen.
