Foignet, Charles Gabriel, French singer and composer; b. Lyons, 1750; d. Paris, 1823. He settled in Paris in 1779, where he taught harpsichord, harp, and singing. After publishing keyboard pieces and songs, he devoted himself to composing for the stage from 1791. With his son, François Foignet (b. Paris, Feb. 17, 1782; d. Strasbourg, July 22, 1845), who was also a singer and composer, he was active with his own Theatre des Jeunes-Artistes from 1798 to 1807. François scored his most celebrated success there when he sang in his own La naissance d’Arlequin, on Arlequin dans un oeuf (July 15, 1803). After 1807, François pursued his singing career in Liege, Bruges, Nantes, Lille, Ghent, and Rouen. Charles had another son, Gabriel Foignet, who was a harpist and composer.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
