Symbol voting keep.svg Interesting story on good sources, offline accepted AGF. Cute hook! Alternative wording of the same, to get her in sooner:
ALT1: ... that Gerd Larsen made her final appearance in 50 years with London's Royal Ballet on her 75th birthday? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:27, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
hook is fine with me, thx Victuallers (talk) 18:49, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Fine with me too. Edwardx (talk) 22:09, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Something's not quite right with the ALT1 wording. I'd like to suggest a further reshuffle, while retaining the earlier article placement:
  • ALT2: ... that Gerd Larsen made her final appearance with London's Royal Ballet on her 75th birthday, after a career there of over half a century?
(Note: "half a century" can be replaced by "50 years" if preferred.) I like the word "career", and think it has specificity that adds to the hook. —BlueMoonset (talk) 01:43, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
