He wrote more than forty stage works in a wide variety of styles, from opéra-comique to grand-scale depictions of classical myths, romantic comedies, lyric dramas, as well as oratorios, cantatas and ballets. His best known works to this day are "Manon, " "Werther, " and Thais. Massenet later became a professor at the Conservatoire. He taught composition there from 1878 until 1896.
