This book is an unique resource which directly addresses all performers who sing and act, whether in opera, musical theatre or music-theatre. By looking beyond the separate acts of singing and acting the performer builds up a greater awareness of how the two interrelate to form a single powerful expression.
Using games, exercises and discussion, The Singing and Acting Handbook takes a stimulating approach to the demands made upon today's performers, and will equip both the experienced professional and the student to take full advantage of rehearsal and performance. With advice on approaches to learning music, interpreting scores, and building characters, it provides a long-awaited innovative resource for performers, directors, workshop leaders and teachers.

About the Author:

Thomas de Mallet Burgess reads Philosophy and Modern Languages at Oxford University. He works internationally as a freelance director and workshop leader in opera, musicals and spoken theatre. In the UK he has worked for the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Opera North, Welsh National Opera, the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Academy of Music. Nicholas Skilbeck is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. He works internationally as a musical director, composer and vocal coach, for companies such as Cameron Mackintosh, Lyric Theatre Hammersmith, and the Royal National Theatre. As a teacher he has lead workshops in opera and musical theatre for English National Opera, Studio des Varietes (Paris), and the Royal Academy of Music.

From Library Journal:

This collaborative effort by Oxford don and musical director de Mallet Burgess and acclaimed international musical director, composer, and teacher Skilbeck is the result of the authors' efforts to develop practical and effective exercises to merge music and drama in the study and performance of musical theater, opera, operetta, vaudeville, and cabaret. Following an introductory section establishing the constituent elements of music, drama, and the workshop process through which the techniques can be incorporated, the authors delineate over 100 exercises for fundamentals: rhythm, pulse, and time; music, text, and score; and character, emotion, and sound. Instructions for each workshop-tested exercise are prefaced by its title, goal, methodology, risk factor, and necessary resources. This wonderful compendium of exercises clearly supports the authors' basic tenet that musical theater is greater than the sum of its usually segregated parts. Certain to become a standard in this discipline.
-Barry X. Miller, Austin P.L.
