How to use Meilhac in a sentence
Some say it was a fortunate event for Meilhac; others assert that Halevy reaped a great profit by the union.L'Abbe Constantin, Complete|Ludovic Halevy
It is perhaps not too much to say that Meilhac and Halvy are seen at their best in these one-act plays.
Born in 1832, M. Henri Meilhac, like M. mile Zola, dealt in books before he began to make them.
M. Meilhac has the more masculine style, and so the literary progeny of the couple bear rather his name than his associate's.
It is not that M. Halvy is some two years the junior of M. Meilhac: it lies in the quality of their respective abilities.
