Carl Emil Paul Lincke was a German composer and theater conductor. He is considered the “father” of the Berlin operetta and holds the same significance for Berlin as does Johann Strauss for Vienna and Jacques Offenbach for Paris. His well-known compositions include “Berliner Luft”, the unofficial anthem of Berlin, from his operetta Frau Luna; and “The Glow-Worm”, from his operetta Lysistrata.
