Charles Gounod (1818–1893) showed early promise as a musician and won France's most prestigious musical prize, the Prix de Rome. He composed 12 operas, of which Faust (1859) and Roméo et Juliette (1867) are still regularly performed. Gounod’s other compositions include sacred music, songs, piano music, incidental music for plays and two symphonies.

Jules Barbier (1825–1901) and Michel Carré (1821–1872) were the leading librettists of their day in France. The libretto is loosely based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s masterpiece.
