Quinault, Jean Baptiste Maurice



Very little is known of this accomplished man. From 1712 to 1718 he had a position as singer in the Theatre Frangais in Paris, and until 1733 was also an actor there. He set to music more than twenty pieces which include intermedes, ballets, etc. He composed a grand ballet in four acts which was produced at the Grand Opera in 1729. He retired about ten years before his death, which occurred in Gien.
