French composer Charles Louis Ambroise Thomas (1811- 1896) is best known now for two operas: Mignon (1866) and Hamlet (1868). He is also remembered for being the director of the Paris Conservatory from 1871 until his death, during a time of increasing focus on notional styles in composition and the beginnings of Wagner's influence across Europe.
