Style/Specific types of releases/Theatre
s apply to soundtracks for musical theater or films. These are works where songs are performed by the actors as part of the work (but not operas, which are covered by ClassicalStyleGuide and OperaTrackStyle, nor live (non-theatrical) performances by musical groups).
- The ReleaseArtist should be the composer, not the performer(s).
- The ReleaseTitle is just the title of the musical. Additional information is only added if necessary to distinguish between multiple soundtracks, and should contain the performance cast name, e.g. "Carousel (Original Broadway Cast)"
- The ReleaseAttribute should be Soundtrack.
In cases where the composer and lyricist collaborated on a number of musicals, and are generally well-known, it would probably make sense to use a collaboration artist (e.g. "Rogers & Hart") rather than the composer alone. @alex
