thanks Paul, voice credit now ok (and I do hear a similarity to Todd in your voice credit :wink: )

Basque Act 3 is also PL ok. Not a lot to say, but flawlessly acted out nonetheless.

...now on to Nemo, which will take a bit more time, please be patient. Alceste has a huge role :shock:

first of all, this was a huge undertaking you have settled for. Alceste is quite the talker LOL

You portray him very very well. In the beginning he seems quite embittered and cynical with his friend.

Then the highlight is the scene with Oronte, where you really let loose and tell him a few uncomfortable truths, he sounds less bitter there, but more mocking actually. He feels better because he doesn't have to dissemble. As I have already heard Alan as your counterpart, I know that you two are gelling perfectly with the way you both behave. Haven't heard Todd yet, as the third man in the scene, but I'm sure this one will sound great. Probably one of the funniest scenes in the play. Well done :thumbs:

I also loved the change of tempo at the end, after Oronto left and Alceste is now in "rage mode" and really ranting. You managed to go through these three moods very efficiently. Nicely acted out. Can't wait to hear the rest. With Célimène he will again have a totally different approach, as a man in love, who still cannot shake off his strict beliefs. Looking forward to hearing how this will turn out.

I only found one tiny error:

> at 18:23: “This versification is not rich” – you say “verification”, which is not really what is meant here, as he speaks about verses

The rest: perfect

ah another wonderful run-through :thumbs: I love the small laughs or sighs you put in here and there for emphasis. And Alceste stays firm in his strict beliefs, even faced with Célimène, although he is infatuated with her. You sometimes sound so heart-breakingly desperate in some parts. Nicely in character :9:

Act 2 is also PL ok. Thanks, Nemo :)

Sonia, a bit of a quieter interlude at a length of 3:27 .... before the action heats up in Act IV! :)

ah yes, this was a shorty :mrgreen: well, that's because Alceste spent most of the time of Act 3 at court, I guess.

Yes, the scene with Arsinoé comes together now. At the end he is sufficiently annoyed by her little snake-bites :thumbs: well done.

No errors, so PL ok

thanks Nemo, another longer act. Now you add "despair" to Alceste's rollercoaster of feelings. One could really say, this role is perfect to learn all the expressions of diverse feelings that appear in stage plays. Well done !

I will mark this already PL ok, although there was a tiny discrepancy with the text:

> at 8:19: “the prevarication is ingenious” – you say “ingenuous”, and while it’s not the same thing, I think both words could make sense here, so you can either correct it to be word perfect or leave it, as you wish. :)

Sonia, with you as my mentor for drama, I could hardly leave it now, could I? :wink:

Back up for Spot PL if you want to take a quick listen!
