Jules Laurent Anacharsis Duprato (20 August 1827 – 20 May 1892) was a 19th-century French composer.
A student of Aimé Leborne at the Conservatoire de Paris, he won first grand prix de Rome for musical composition in 1848.
After the success of his opéra comique Les Trovatelles, performed at Salle Favart in 1854 and his operetta M'sieu Landry, premiered at Théâtre des Bouffes-Parisiens in 1856, expectations were high for the young composer. His following works, however, including the operas La Déesse et le Berger (1863), La Fiancée de Corinthe (1867), and Le Cerisier (1874), rapidly fell into obscurity.
He was appointed a professor of harmony at the conservatory in 1871. He published several arrangements of La Marseillaise, wrote music for male chorus and one symphony. His pupils included Robert Planquette, Georges Douay, and Antoine Simon.
His grave at Montmartre Cemetery is decorated with a medallion by sculptor Gabriel Thomas.
He was made chevalier of the Légion d'honneur in 1886.
