New format[edit]

I've edited this template to a collapsible navbox format. These "Opera by Composer" templates were designed for readers to navigate between operas by the same composer. They are not infoboxes. A copy of the old template is in the history. See: WikiProject Opera [1]Voceditenore (talk) 11:52, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Boccanegra 1881[edit]

I think it's not helpful to list the 1881 version of Simone Boccanegra separately in this navigation box; after all, it links to the same article. If it is felt to be helpful, the title could be followed by two years, (1857, 1881), although I don't think that's necessary. I suggest to revert that edit. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 06:50, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

I agree. If there is one article, there should only be one link and one date. Otherwise, this could really get out of hand. --Robert.Allen (talk) 19:08, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

alt text[edit]

As all images are supposed to have alt text for the benefit of blind or otherwise visually impaired readers, is it possible to add "|alt=Elderly man, moustached and bearded, wearing top hat" to the template? Tim riley (talk) 11:54, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
