Jacques Offenbach (1819–1880) was born in Cologne, Germany. He moved to Paris in 1833, where he became a hugely successful composer. Today he is best known for his only opera The Tales of Hoffmann, and for his almost 100 operettas, many of which continue to be staged in the 21st. century.

Jules Barbier (1825–1901) and Michel Carré (1821–1872), the leading librettists of their day in France, wrote a play based on three short stories by the German author E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776–1822). Later they adapted the play for the opera stage.
