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). See also SoundtrackStyle and SoundtrackTitleStyle (which apply mostly to film and video game soundtracks, but do overlap this).
- The ReleaseArtist should be the composer (or specific well-known collaborations, listed below), not the performer(s).
- The ReleaseTitle is just the title of the musical. The title should exclude secondary information such as "Original Soundtrack", "Music from," etc. except that
- Performance cast (with year) may be used if required to distinguish the release from other versions of the soundtrack, for example Carousel (1956 Film Cast).
- The ReleaseAttribute should be Soundtrack.
An exception is made to credit well-known composer/lyricist collaborations as Release Artist. These exceptions are:
- Gilbert & Sullivan
- Kander & Ebb
- Lerner & Loewe
- Rodgers & Hammerstein
- Rodgers & Hart
- Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber
- Claude-Michel Schönberg & Alain Boublil
- Tom Eyen & Henry Krieger
