By the time of his death, Massenet was regarded by many critics as old-fashioned and unadventurous although his two best-known operas remained popular in France and abroad. After a few decades of neglect, his works began to be favourably reassessed during the midth century, and many of them have since been staged and recorded.
He gained some work as a piano accompanist, in the course of which he met Wagner who, along with Berlioz , was one of his two musical heroes. The first two of these were on the judging panel for the competition. He recalled:. Ambroise Thomas, my beloved master, came towards me and said, "Embrace Berlioz, you owe him a great deal for your prize.
Monsieur Auber comforted me. Did I need comforting? Then he said to Berlioz pointing to me, "He'll go far, the young rascal, when he's had less experience!
The prize brought a well-subsidised three-year period of study, two-thirds of which was spent at the French Academy in Rome , based at the Villa Medici. Massenet and Ninon fell in love, but marriage was out of the question while he was a student with modest means. Massenet returned to Paris in He made a living by teaching the piano and publishing songs, piano pieces and orchestral suites, all in the popular style of the day.
In October Massenet and Ninon were married; their only child, Juliette, was born in Massenet's musical career was briefly interrupted by the Franco-Prussian War of —71, during which he served as a volunteer in the National Guard alongside his friend Bizet. Massenet was a prolific composer; he put this down to his way of working, rising early and composing from four o'clock in the morning until midday, a practice he maintained all his life.
Massenet's opera, although not a work of genius proper, is one of more than common merit, and contains all the elements of at least temporary success. This period was an early high point in Massenet's career. He had been made a chevalier of the Legion of Honour in , and in he was appointed professor of counterpoint, fugue and composition at the Conservatoire under Thomas, who was now the director. Massenet was a popular and respected teacher at the Conservatoire. In the view of the critic Rodney Milnes , "In word-setting alone, all French musicians profited from the freedom he won from earlier restrictions.
It ran for fifty-five performances in Brussels, and had its Italian premiere two months later at La Scala. The work finally reached Paris in February , by which time Massenet had established himself as the leading French opera composer of his generation. Together with Gounod's Faust and Bizet's Carmen it became, and has remained, one of the cornerstones of the French operatic repertoire. The Paris correspondent of The New York Times wrote that with this new work Massenet "has resolutely declared himself a melodist of undoubted consistency and of remarkable inspiration.
He developed passionate feelings for her, which remained platonic, although it was widely believed in Paris that she was his mistress, as caricatures in the journals hinted with varying degrees of subtlety. The latter was a success, but it was followed by Le mage , which failed. Massenet did not complete his next project, Amadis , and it was not until that he recovered his earlier successful form.
Werther received its first performance in February , when the Vienna Hofoper asked for a new piece, following the enthusiastic reception of the Austrian premiere of Manon. Though in the view of some writers Werther is the composer's masterpiece,   it was not immediately taken up with the same keenness as Manon.
Massenet's opera does not have lasting success it will be because it has no genuine depth. Perhaps M. Massenet is not capable of achieving profound depths of tragic passion; but certainly he will never do so in a work like Werther ". The audience clamoured for the composer to acknowledge the applause, but Massenet, always a shy man, declined to take even a single curtain call. The death of Ambroise Thomas in February made vacant the post of director of the Conservatoire.

The French government announced on 6 May that Massenet had been offered the position and had refused it. Massenet wrote in that he had remained in post as professor out of loyalty to Thomas, and was eager to abandon all academic work in favour of composing, a statement repeated by his biographers Hugh Macdonald and Demar Irvine. According to his memoirs, he declined a second offer of the directorship of the Conservatoire in He was uninterested in Parisian society, and so shunned the limelight that in later life he preferred not to attend his own first nights.
A rare excursion from the opera house came in with Massenet's only piano concerto , on which he had begun work while still a student. The last two, like Amadis , which he had been unable to finish in the s, were premiered after the composer's death and then lapsed into oblivion. The composer had been suffering from abdominal cancer for some months, but his symptoms did not seem imminently life-threatening.
