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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""The Singing and Acting Handbook is an excellent reference resource intended to create and keep alive the requisite self-knowledge, imagination, and creativity to distinguish the especially talented performer from the thousands of others.."
-Choice
"Teachers of music theater or opera will want this in their libraries for the use of students at all levels.."
-Choice
"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."
-"Library Journal, February 15, 2000
"For any institution serious about integrating singing and acting, this book should be the first port of call."
-John Caird, Honarary Associate Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Co-director of 'Les Miserables', London and New York
"[A] groundbreaking collection of exercises."
-Paul Reeve, The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
