  1. ^ According to the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, "the various genre terms were always applied freely", and by the 1860s their use had become "arbitrary and capricious": see "Burlesque," Grove Music Online. Oxford Music Online, accessed 3 February 2011 (perlu berlangganan). In an 1896 article on Burlesque in The Theatre, the three terms are used interchangeably: see Adams, W. Davenport.
