Composer. Born in Montepellier, France, he entered the Paris Conservatory in 1833, where he was a pupil of Halevy and won the Prix de Rome for the cantata "Lionel Foscari" (1841). His comic opera "Les Dragons de Villars" (1856) was for many years a warhorse of the Paris Opera repertory; its overture and the vocal numbers "Espoir charmant" and "Ne parle pas, Rose" are occasionally performed today. His other operas include "Gastibelza" (1847), "Le Croix de Marie" (1849), "Les Pecheurs de Catane" (1850), and "Lara" (1864). He was awarded the Legion of Honor in 1860. During the Franco-Prussian War, Maillart fell ill while fleeing the Siege of Paris and died in Moulins a few months later.
