The text and the music for the Dramma per musica Paride ed Elena probably originated in Vienna between 1768 and 1770: details of the genesis of the work are not known. Calzabigi may have started the text-book after the premiere of Alceste (December 26th, 1767) and wrote it aloud a letter to Antonio Greppi, already before December 12th, 1768, while Gluck had begun composing at that time, but probably not earlier than in the first months of 1770. The premiere took place on Saturday, November 3rd, 1770 at the Vienna Burgtheater in honor of Peter Leopold, Archduke of Austria and Grand Duke of Tuscany.
