Camille Erlanger

Camille Erlanger (25 May 1863 – 24 April 1919) was a Parisian-born French opera composer. He studied at the Paris Conservatory under Léo Delibes (composition), Georges Mathias (piano), as well as Émile Durand and Antoine Taubon (harmony).[1] In 1888 he won the Prix de Rome for his cantata Velléda. His most famous opera, Le Juif polonais, was produced at the Opéra-Comique in 1900.

Erlanger died in Paris and was buried in the Père Lachaise Cemetery.[2]

A street in Quebec City, Avenue Erlanger, is named after Erlanger.[3]
