Telemaque was first performed at the King's Theatre on 27 March 1799, receiving 24 performances. The dancers included D'Egville, Didelot and Hilligsberg. Smith 191. The music draws from Haydn, Pleyel, Sacchini, Gluck, and others.
Both D'Egville and Bossi were engaged by the King's Theatre as choreographer and composer/arranger respectively. While D'Egville is credited along with Bossi with the present ballet, it is most likely that Bossi was largely responsible for the music with D'Egville responsible for the choreography. The ballet itself was a reworking of d'Abuberval's ballet of the same name.
