Mozart and Varesco were commissioned in by Karl TheodorElector of Bavaria for a court carnival. He probably chose the subject, though it may have been Mozart. The libretto clearly draws inspiration from Metastasio in its overall layout, the type of character development, and the highly poetic language used in the various numbers and the secco and stromentato recitatives.
Kurt Kramer  has suggested that Varesco was familiar with Calzabigi and therefore the work of Gluck, especially the latter's Alceste ; much of what we see in Varesco's most dramatic passages is the latest French style, mediated by Calzabigi.

A concert performance was given in at the Palais Auersperg in Vienna. For this, Mozart wrote some new music, made some cuts, and changed Idamante from a castrato to a tenor.

Thus Munich commissioned an Idomeneo revision from Ermanno Wolf-Ferrariperformed inand the same year the Vienna State Opera presented a distinctively interventionist version of the score by Richard Strauss.
