Wet into service of Louis XIV, 1652; naturalised French, 1661; achieved the supreme musical position at court, 1662. Himself a dancer, collaborated with Molière in comedy ballets; from 1663 wrote operas. Wrote also church music, dance music, etc., and established the "French Overture". A brilliant intriguer; obtained a monopoly of opera production in France; made a fortune by speculation; injured his foot with the long staff he used for beating time on the floor, and died of the resulting abscess.
