16418 Lortzing           Discovered 1987 Sept. 29 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
Albert Lortzing (1801-1851), who was born and died in Berlin, was a singer, an actor and later a conductor in Leipzig, Vienna and Berlin. His romantic-comic operas (Zar und Zimmermann, Der Wildschütz, Undine, Der Waffenschmied) became very popular and are full of humor. He mainly wrote the libretti himself.
