I guess the image would be better if cropped for this purpose, not for the article. What do you think, David? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:52, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Agreed. I've uploaded a cropped version. —David Levy 02:47, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Alternatively, here's a square crop. —David Levy 05:52, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg The article meets DYK requirements, no close paraphrasing was found, and a QPQ has been provided. The roles section currently lacks references, so that has to be resolved first. While the hook fact is cited inline, I find the wording a little clunky and could be written better. Perhaps something like:
ALT0a ... that the Hungarian coloratura soprano Sylvia Geszty (pictured) started her international career as a member of the East Berlin Staatsoper?
With that said, I honestly am not sure if that's even interesting (either the original or my own rewording). Another option could be a more minor rewording of the original hook, something like:
ALT0b ... that the Hungarian coloratura soprano Sylvia Geszty (pictured) was a member of the East Berlin Staatsoper before joining the Stuttgart State Opera?
Which doesn't really resolve the hook interest issues, but personally I think that a Hungarian joining both East and West German musical groups does sound intriguing. In case that doesn't work out, perhaps:
ALT1 ... that Sylvia Geszty's portrayal of the role of Zerbinetta in the opera Ariadne auf Naxos was described by a critic as the "most emotional, multi-faceted and human of all"?

Thank you for offering. I didn't dare to suggest ALT1, because it's one critic's pov, - beautiful as it is. Where would "pictured" go? East-West is something specific to her career, - they changed record covers when she dared to leave the Berlin Opera. ALT0a is boring, therefore, showing only one side. In ALT1b, where would "pictured" go? It's East style which needs to show. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gerda Arendt (talkcontribs) 14:01, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
