Failed GA

The prose of the article isn't paticularly brilliant deserves a copyedit or two from different users, also the synopsis needs to be severly trimmed as at this point it is non-comprehensive. The article features only three references and no inline citations. The article is not paticularly "broad in [it's] coverage", it would be nice to have something on it's influence or the reception of opening night: something on the public's reaction to the opera, if possible. Finally, the lead could use expansion. The Filmaker 20:09, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play? -- Ssilvers (talk) 17:00, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Wagner or Mendelssohn?

The article attributes the title of WSG's earlier play to a wish to capitalise on the popularity of the Lohengrin march - but that march is always known in England as "The Bridal March" (or Bridal Chorus). The one known as "The Wedding March" is from Mendelssohn's music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. - Tim riley (talk) 10:57, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Stedman (p. 110) writes: "This was the long-delayed 'Hunting a Hat', retitled at Marie [Litton]'s suggestion and now known as The Wedding March, to capitalize on the current interest in Lohengrin. Marc Shepherd (talk) 17:05, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
