No, I think we should keep it separate. Opera prompting is different from spoken drama prompting. As there have been comments on this since May I will remove the merge tag.-- Kleinzach 01:44, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
I've added the 'references' tag to the article, particularly because I want to see some. I am not much of an opera goer, but certainly the (non-professional) operas I have stage managed have never had a prompter; and when I have watched opera I've never noticed a prompt box. I know it used to be beloved of cartoonists and comedy films: I'm wondering whether it still exists or whether this is actually a defunct tradition, or perhaps only regional. --ColinFine (talk) 19:09, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
