Paragon production[edit]

That section seems like self-congratulatory writing and really does not belong in Wikipedia unless other productions are given appropriate space. The Broadway production and certainly the Houston production - which is the one available on video - should merit larger sections. -- kosboot (talk) 13:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Staged versions[edit]

There's no reason to enumerate every production that's a little different. If people think this is really necessary, then all operas should have it, and of course they don't. I'm willing to tolerate maybe 1 line for production, place and date. At least that will get rid of the Paragaon self-promotion which is against WP policy. -- kosboot (talk) 22:45, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Concur with pruning, although this is perhaps a bit drastic, there was useful information there, although it was way too heavy on the quotes. Also the references in this article are a complete mess, some of them are called "Notes", others "Citations", but the notes are actually citations. Needs a complete going over. See The Bartered Bride, for how these should be handled. I've already moved some of the random external links floating around in the middle of the text to the External links section.

Yes and no. In general it makes indeed often very very little sense to enumerate each stage production of a musical work. However for works that are rather rarely performed (like in this case), it can make sense to name/enumerate this few ones.--Kmhkmh (talk) 09:41, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

I think this statement is inaccurate: "Deutsche Grammophon had previously released the audio version of this [Houston Grand Opera] production on LPs in 1976." The Deutsche Grammophon recording is not of the Houston production, but of the cast of the national tour: Balthrop is, indeed, the soprano, but the mezzo is Betty Allen, who sang the tour. Can someone find appropriate references and clarify this? I wouldn't dream of mucking things up by trying. 71.183.2.134 (talk) 02:22, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Hmm. I'm not sure. I have the original LP and Betty Allen is credited as the original cast as Monisha in the first fully staged production of Scott Joplin’s Treemonisha at the Houston Grand Opera. Tour and original cast is insignificant with this production, I would imagine; considering she reprised the role on many occasion. Maineartists (talk) 02:49, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Finale plaigerised by Berlin?[edit]

In the feedback for this article, 92.237.77.96 wrote:

The Finale was Alexander's Ragtime Band,but,was plaguerised by Irvine Berlin,(common for him).When Joplin heard it he cried and so wrote a new piece A Real Slow Drag.

I doubt whether this is true; if the person can provide a citation, then it should be included in the article. -- kosboot (talk) 22:19, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
