More up to date sound file?[edit]

Just curious if a more current sound file could be found. The one used here hit one hundred years old a few weeks ago. While the sound quality isn't bad, it does have some interference (as would be expected from a recording of this age). Just a thought on my part, I mean an encyclopedia should ideally have the most current information available, and I have to imagine that somewhere in the last century someone has made a new recording of this piece. -- 11:39, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

We cannot justify hosting a copyrighted soundclip for illustrative purposes, precisely because there are public domain ones. However, the musical notes are the same, so it's the same information. -- drini [meta:] [commons:] 17:46, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
The recording is not just some 100 year old garbage. It's ENRICO CARUSO, the greatest tenor who ever lived, singing on a recording that would become the first million copies sold record in history. Wishing to replace it with last week's flavor of the month shows a comical lack of appreciation for the historical significance of this recording. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:17, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

English translation[edit]

Shouldn't Pagliaccio be translated into clown? 03:36, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Not really, because although Pagliaccio nowadays does mean the same as clown, it used to refer to a specific character in Commedia Dell'arte. Besides, Arlecchino could just as well be called a "clown" (which it is), adding to the confusion. We'd better leave the original name untranslated.E.Cogoy 20:35, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

It's usually seen as "Vesti la giubba". I see no case for an upper case Giubba. -- JackofOz (talk) 02:38, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I've requested this be moved. -- JackofOz (talk) 20:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

"The show must go on"[edit]

The article currently mentions that

Canio discovers his wife's infidelity, but must nevertheless prepare for his performance as Pagliaccio the clown because "The show must go on".

The phrase "the show must go on" links to the disambiguation page of that phrase. The only relevant link there is to the article whose name is the phrase (the other links are to art works on that theme). So I edited the article, intending to fix it. I was surprised to find the comment "intentional link to disambiguation page" after the link.

My natural question is, why? Why link to the disambiguation page, when the meaningful link would be to the actual article about the old show-biz motto. (Also, why the capital T?)

I'm hesitant to change something that somebody said they did on purpose. But I'm hesitant to leave something alone when it's wrong. TypoBoy (talk) 04:46, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Until 22 March 2014 the page The show must go on was a disambiguation page and The show must go on (disambiguation) redirected to it; see here and here. Intentional links to disambiguation pages are customarily done to those pages with "(disambiguation)" in their name, even if they themselves redirect to other pages. The main page was then changed to an article about the phrase and the disambiguation page became what it is now. You are right that there is now no reason not to link to The show must go on. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:37, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
OK, done. Thank you for figuring that out and explaining it. TypoBoy (talk) 03:26, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
