Can Can Infernal Galop?
Just so, can Can Infernal Galop piano?
Listen to our “Can-Can” (also known as the “Galop Infernal”) piano cover and learn how to play it yourself with our piano lessons. The most famous version of the Can-can was composed by Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880): The "Galop Infernal" is the grand finale of his operetta "Orpheus in the Underworld".
Likewise, where is the can can song from? Officially, it's the "Infernal Galop " from Act II, Scene 2 of Jacques Offenbach's 1858 operetta Orpheus in the Underworld. To the rest of the world, it's simply "the cancan song." And it's usually (although not always) a cue for high-kicking Chorus Girls to hit the stage.
Then, can Can Orpheus in the Underworld?
The opera is a lampoon of the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. In this version Orpheus is not the son of Apollo but a rustic violin teacher. He is glad to be rid of his wife, Eurydice, when she is abducted by the god of the underworld.

Can Can Dance Offenbach?
The most famous music is French composer Jacques Offenbach's Galop Infernal in his operetta Orphée aux Enfers (Orpheus in the Underworld) (1858). However, the galop is actually another sort of dance. French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec produced several paintings and a large number of posters of can-can dancers.
