The lights dim in the theatre. You try to lose yourself in the show but the day’s stresses seep in. You write to-do lists in your head, fret about tomorrow’s meeting and decide to deal with some emails in the interval. Now consider the performers centre-stage. While we may have an off day or occasionally put ourselves on cruise control, that’s not an option if you’re starring in a huge stage show. Unlike most of us, they have got a paying audience – with high expectations – watching them at work. How do they manage it, night after night? And what could we learn from them about dealing with pressure? I decided to talk to a musical-theatre star, a ballerina and an opera singer to get some tips on channelling some of that energy and drive – maybe even a bit of razzle-dazzle – into our daily lives.
How to thrive under pressure: What can stars of the stage teach us about performing in demanding roles?
