Pygmalion (opera)Pygmalion (Benda) – This duodrama is of Georg Benda and Friedrich Wilhelm Gotter, and there are more than one opera with the same title. I don't know if I should choose either this, Pygmalion (Gotter), or Pygmalion (Benda and Gotter). However, the title chosen must be mentioned before the argument is posted. --Gh87 (talk) 04:20, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Oppose – The current name is wholly compliant with Wikipedia:WikiProject Opera/Article guidelines#Operas: disambiguation. Besides, I'm not aware of any oper article which uses its librettist as a disambiguator. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 05:58, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
The disambiguation page Pygmalion has opera references and may help you re-think your argument. You may strike and insert at anytime and anywhere. --Gh87 (talk) 07:29, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
The disambiguation guidelines I mentioned allow for an infinite number of works without the need to move any. The opera titles mention at Pygmalion follow those guidelines, and I don't see the need to abandon them now. If Karol Kurpiński's lost opera Pygmalion gets an article, they can be applied to its title as well. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 09:43, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Oppose. This is a complex case, but it has not been described well enough for editors to make an informed decision. It would help, for example, if it were noted that the title of the other opera article disambiguated with "(opera)" has an "i" instead of a "y": Pigmalion (opera). Let's give the folks clear information, guys. I will oppose until that is fixed. NoeticaTea? 10:50, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
