All parameters

|name= This is the name of the template, e.g. Template:Handel would use "Handel" in this box.
|title= The title placed at the top, such as "Works by Richard Wagner" or "George Frideric Handel". The composer's name should be wikilinked by putting it in square brackets.
|image= Optional – filename of the image, without the File: or Image: prefix; if omitted, no image will be shown.
|alt= Alt text for the image, for visually impaired readers. See Alternative text for images.
|imagesize= Optional – size of the image, in the form 170px; defaults to 190px.
|caption= Optional – caption for the image.
|h1color= Optional – colour for the title box surrounding the composer's name, in hexadecimal form, e.g. #DDBB9F or a recognised colour name, e.g. silver; defaults to silver (=#C0C0C0): Works by Richard Wagner
|h2color= Optional – colour for the collapsed boxes (should usually be a lighter version of h1color); defaults to #DDDDDD: Operas
|italic title= Optional – see note above. |italic title=no can be used on pages which use this template but where the article title should not be italicised; if a page contains more than one use of this template, the article title will be italicised unless all templates specify this parameter. |italic title=force can be used to force italics for the whole article title, including parentheses, or to enable italics for article titles longer than 50 characters; see {{italic title}}. For more complicated forms of italicising the article title, see the magic word {{DISPLAYTITLE:…}}.
When this parameter is needed to disable italicising the article title of a page where a specific composer's template, say {{Bellini operas}}, is used, it needs to be specified in that template in the form italic title={{{italic title|}}}.
|expanded= Optional – one of the listxname entries below which should be initially expanded; if omitted, all sections will initially be shown collapsed.

When this template ({{Composer navbox}}) is used to create a template for the works of a specific composer, say {{Handel}}, this parameter may be specified in that template in the form expanded={{{expanded}}}; this will allow this parameter to be passed through when that template ({{Handel}}) is invoked from different articles where the expansion of a different section might be desired. Note: the WikiProject Opera has formed a consensus that templates of works should generally be presented collapsed to minimise visual impact and potential displacement of other images.

|list1name= Optional – title for the first list, such as "Operas", "Symphonies"; defaults to "Operas".
|list1= Items of the first list; items must be separated by <br /> or start on new lines with an asterisk (*) in the first position (see Example above).
|list2name= Title for the second list, for example "Cantatas", "Other important music", or "Related articles"
|list2= Items of the second list.
More list names and items, up to five.


The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.


Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.


hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • role
  • url
  • vcard

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.
