This is a CSG Standard page giving appropriate ReleaseTitle and TrackTitle strings for the opera i Capuleti e i Montecchi, by Vincenzo Bellini, which conform to the Classical Style Guide. It also contains hints which can help you create Advanced Relationships for a Release and its Tracks in MusicBrainz.

Track Titles

TrackTitles: The first columns indicate which vocal performer appears in each scene, according to the musical score. Follow these first columns when assigning ARs to tracks. The rows here are fairly fine-grained.

Your Release may have one track which includes multiple rows of the table. Also, if your Release uses different wording for the music type (before the quotes) and within the quotes, you can use that instead. Some Release liners divide the acts into Scenes, but the vocal score does not. It divides each act into seven parts, e.g. "Scena e Cavatina".
