Lilian Benningsen

  • Reviewed: Mandy Moore (choreographer)
  • Comment: The original hook is professional, the second for those who can't imagine what "create a role" means, and the third adding Eboli which must have been quite sensational, according to sources. If a date connection is wanted: DOD 12 June.

  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg I'm going to suggest a new hook here, letting another reviewer decide if it's good enough for DYK or not. I've also struck ALT0 and ALT2 as being too long and too complicated (and ALT0 uses the "created the role" terminology which consensus has determined is not appropriate for DYK purposes), keeping ALT1 as a hook that is direct to the point and explaining the main hook fact in a concise manner.
ALT3... that Austrian opera singer Lilian Benningsen was awarded the title Kammersängerin, and was given the Bavarian Order of Merit in 1970?
I am aware that you are not fond of hooks that mention the Kammersängerin term, but you have to understand that this is a mostly-unfamiliar term to non-opera audiences, and a mention of it in this form would be a good idea to introduce it to new readers. In addition, the statement "Her grave is in the Waldfriedhof in Gauting" lacks a footnote. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 15:25, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
