Henri Trianon

Henri Trianon (born 11 July 1811 in Paris – died 17 October 1896 ibid) was a French critic, librettist and translator of works by Homer and Plato, and operas by Weber and Mozart into French.[1] He was an artistic and literary critic in Paris who eventually became teacher. In 1842 he became under-librarian and then librarian at Sainte Geneviève in 1849.[2] From 1857-59 Trianon was associated with Nestor Roqueplan in the administration of the Opéra-Comique.

He also wrote the libretto to the ballet Orfa by Bizet, which he co-wrote once it had been refused by Charles Gounod.[4]
