If you want the box "as narrow as possible", then the way to do that is by setting the box width in the CSS properties, not by adding random linebreaks in the middle of titles. I set it at 20em but feel free to decrease that if you want.

Mahagonny-Songspiel isn't an opera, but neither is Johnny Johnson. Anyway, what's the point of such an arbitrary criterion? Isn't the point of this box to make navigation easier to articles about Weill's staged works?—Chowbok 23:07, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Right I have now reduced the width again. The point of the box is to list Weill's operas and musicals - that's what it says at the top of the box. If the Songspiel is not an opera or a musical it obviously shouldn't be there. BTW serial reversion doesn't facilitate this kind of discussion - it was unnecessary anyway because I had already left a message on your talk page. Hmm. -- Kleinzach (talk) 23:28, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
I reverted before you left the message. I would argue that the Songspiel is a musical, though not an opera.—Chowbok 23:40, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
You can check the time of my message. I've checked Hinton in Grove and he does list M-Songspiel as a staged work, so although it's marginal there's no great harm in it being in the list. It is important however that the template doesn't gather a lot of listcruft by including unstaged works. -- Kleinzach (talk) 00:19, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
