I love Offenbach's music!

There's a line from Offenbach to Monty Python and Asterix. Which other composer would give you a heroine singing a waltz while being cooked by cannibals?

Or the hero pursued by Public Opinion?

Or a love duet in which one of the parties is Zeus disguised as a blowfly?

Or a trio sung in pidgin Italian (one of the funniest moments in music)?

Or the Ronde des Chemins de fer? (Can't find a version online!)

(more below!)
