55 yo.  Much too young to go.  Here is a song for the fallen russian war heroes

For me he was best in the russian repertoire.
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

Very sad...
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.
