His father was a mailman, and his mother a talented amateur musician. His grandfather had been an opera singer. Starting in , Delibes studied composition at the Paris Conservatoire as a student of Adolphe Adam. A year later he began taking voice lessons, though he would end up a much better organ player than singer. The first of his many operettas was Deux sous de charbon, ou Le suicide de Bigorneau "Two sous-worth of coal" , written in for the Folies-Nouvelles. A ceremonial cantata, Algers, for Napoleon III on the theme of Algiers, brought him to official attention; a collaboration with Ludwig Minkus resulted, in which Delibes composed music jointly for the ballet La source , which brought him into the milieu of ballet.
