Ballads Alive! was created as a gift for the many fine, dramatic singers whom the composer has met during her concert travels. The songs incorporate gestures and staging into the presentation. The performers are asked to observe these written instructions, while also adding additional drama if desired. The goal is "personality on the stage!"
