If the King felt amorous, Lully would produce romantic ballets. If the King wished to no longer rely on Latin, to liberate himself from classical references, and to be represented as himself and not Apollo, then Lully gave him a lyrical tragedy. In this way Lully gained the power he desired and became the Superintendent of Music for the King, crushing potential obstacles along the way. In March 1672 he purchased the rights to the librettos of the bankrupt poet, Pierre Perrin. This allowed Lully to reprint them in his own name that Pierre Perrin had produced with Molière.

Lully's music is known for its power, liveliness in its fast movements and its deep emotional character in its slower movements. Some of his most popular works are his passacailles (passacaglias) and chaconnes, which are dance movements found in many of his works such as Armide or Phaëton. At first, as composer of instrumental music for the King's chamber, Lully wrote overtures, dances, dance-like songs, descriptive instrumental pieces such as combats, and parody-like récits with Italian texts. He was so captivated by the French overture that he wrote four of them for the Ballet d'Alcidiane! The development of his instrumental style can be discerned in his chaconnes. He experimented with all types of compositional devices and found new solutions that he later exploited to the full in his operas.
