"In 1783 Piccinni reached his second peak with a highly successful revival of Atys and the introduction of Didon, which momentarily eclipsed the rising star of Sacchini... The sixth and most successful of the nine serious French operas that Piccinni wrote during his sojourn in Paris, Didon continued to be performed there until 1836 and received performances in French and German translation throughout Europe during the first quarter of the 19th century."
