16321687
an Italian-French composer. He was court composer to Louis XIV, founding the national French opera and producing court ballets for Moliere's plays. In close collaboration with the librettist Philippe Quinault, Lully founded the tradition of tragédie en musique, combining singing, dance and visual spectacle, which would remain the most prestigious French operatic genre for almost a hundred years. Cadmus et Hermione (1673) is often regarded as the first example of French opera.
