18381 Massenet           Discovered 1991 Dec. 30 by E. W. Elst at Haute Provence.
Jules Massenet (1842-1912) was a prolific French composer of operas. His greatest successes were Manon (1884), Werther (1892) and Thaïs (1894). The Méditation, a violin solo with orchestra from Thaïs, became world famous. In 1878 he was elected a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts.
