Anna Karenina (ballet)
May Anna Karenina (2005 ballet) be moved to Anna Karenina (ballet)? This is more consistent with the way ballet articles are named when there's an underlying work or other amibguity. There was a red link to Anna Karenina (ballet) on Adaptations of Anna Karenina which I changed to Anna Karenina (Shchedrin) (it is still a red link.) — Robert Greer 23:49, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
- "Anna Karenina (ballet)" would suggest this is the only ballet with this name, which is not the case.
- "Anna Karenina (Tchaikovsky)" is also a little misleading - it would suggest Tchaikovsky wrote a ballet with this name, which he didn't.
- "Anna Karenina (ballet to music by Tchaikovsky") is somewhat unwieldy.
- "Anna Karenina (Eifman ballet)" is accurate, but probably wouldn't mean much to most people, since ballets are normally attributed to their composers rather than their choreographers.
- I'd be happier if we adopted the "Anna Karenina (<name of composer> ballet)" format for both articles. That way it's easy to distinguish "Anna Karenina (Shchedrin ballet)" from "Anna Karenina (Tchaikovsky ballet)". -- JackofOz (talk) 03:53, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
- Anna Karenina (ballet) was a typo. I was invited to dinner — from which I just returned — as I was writing the above.
- I never thought anybody would reply so quickly! What I meant to write was Anna Karenina (Eifman), to go with Anna Karenina (Shchedrin).
- But dinner at the Tribeca Grill trumped Eifman (of whom I am a great devotee, having see his work at City Center).
- Other ballet articles usually have names like Afternoon of a Faun (Rushton) without the word ballet if there's a need to disambiguate one choreographer's from another's.
- Or Symphony No. 1 (ballet) if it's necessary to distinguish a ballet from the music of the same title (where there's only one ballet on Wiki. at least so far). — Robert Greer (talk) 07:12, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
