Czech born opera composer. Most important for his reform of the operatic style, giving them simpler plots and tying music, words, and dance together in a coherent whole. Also known for his translation of national operas for French, German and Italian audiences.

Mentioned at the end of Monty Pythons' Decomposing Composers (simply: Christoph Willibald Gluck. Died, 1787.)
