Born in Paris, his real surname was Philippe. He obtained his first success in collaboration with Charles Desnoyer in Émile, ou le fils d'un pair de France (1831), a drama which was the first of a series of some two hundred pieces written alone or in collaboration with other dramatists. He died in Paris in 1899.[1]


Among the best of his works is a play about Kaspar Hauser (1838) with Auguste Anicet-Bourgeois; Les Bohémiens de Paris (1842) with Eugène Grangé; with Julien de Mallian the play Marie-Jeanne, ou la femme du peuple (1845), in which Marie Dorval obtained a great success; a drama based on Uncle Tom's Cabin (1853) with Dumanoir; and The Two Orphans (1875), perhaps his best piece, with Eugène Cormon.[1] The story was adapted in 1921 by D.W. Griffith as the film Orphans of the Storm.

He wrote the libretto for Gounod's Le tribut de Zamora (1881); with Louis Gallet and Édouard Blau he composed the libretto to Massenet's Le Cid (1885); and, again in collaboration with Cormon, the librettos of Auber's operas, Le premier jour de bonheur (1868) and Rêve d'amour (1869).[1] Other opera librettos include La rose de Terone (1840), Si j'étais roi (1852), Le muletier de Tolède (1854) (on which Michael Balfe's The Rose of Castille (1857) was based), and À Clichy (1854) by Adolphe Adam, Massenet's early Don César de Bazan (1872) and Hervé's La nuit aux soufflets (1884) He prepared for the stage Balzac's posthumous comedy Mercadet ou le faiseur, presented at the Théâtre du Gymnase in 1851.[citation needed] Reversing the usual order of procedure, d'Ennery adapted some of his plays to the form of novels.[1]
