Much of this reads like a bad translation from Italian. "The composer showed the taste for social life and the dandyism." Who writes like that? Certainly nobody whose first language is English. This titan of opera deserves better than this. aldiboronti (talk) 08:17, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
You're quite right! It could also be Google Translate's work. But work is needed. Along with the Donizetti opera articles, some of which I'm currently working on, Bellini is on my list to get to....... Viva-Verdi (talk) 17:11, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, striking while the iron is hot, as it were, I've gone ahead and tidied up the article a bit to make it a bit better, but - since I have several of the ref. books on the "Sources" list, I can work on this further. Viva-Verdi (talk) 18:10, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
