Act 4 ready for final PL. The first scene between Psyche's sisters is absolutely priceless! Wonderful acting. (And the rest of it is great too - but that first scene - wow!)
:9: I'm on it. Looking forward to this. Yes TJ and I were having fun there.

Now I can listen to 4 and 5 in the correct order.

oh, you've been busy. I have just finished listening to 4 and 5 in continuation. Sounds absolutely wonderful. :9: Each dialogue partners were really well fitting together, I'm amazed once again how well we make this work even though each of us records alone in our part of the world. But the final product sounds so amazing.

Both acts PL ok. I noticed you re-recorded all the Psyches, Todd :thumbs: sounds more familiar like this indeed.

And on to act 2...

and Act 2 is also PL ok. Again, great dialogues, craftily assembled :thumbs:

I was considering to mention that in the interlude you could have kept the stage direction "Part 1" and "Part 2", to show that the ballet is interrupted at two occasions. But it's probably superfluous as this is mentioned in the intro of the interlude anyway.

So all good. :)

Two acts left....we're making great progress here

Zephyr act 3
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/psyche_zephyr_3.mp3

Palemon
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/psyche_palemon_1.mp3
I have tried to sync this with Nemo
thank you, Alan ! Both sections are beautifully read. I cannot recall Nemo's version at the moment, but I'm sure you did a great job with the synching.

Zephyr already PL ok.

For Palemon I have a note, but let's wait for Todd to weigh in on this:

right at the beginning there is a chorus where Palemon also should take part. But Todd has already 3 readings for the chorus, maybe this is enough to merge together. Don't record anything yet, unless Todd needs another voice:
CHORUS OF DIVINITIES of the earth and streams, composed of FLORA, NYMPHS, PALEMON, VERTUMNUS, SYLVANS, FAUNS, DRYADS, and NAIADS.
A peace profound we now enjoy,
And games and bliss without alloy;
Earth's mightiest king has giv'n us rest;
To him be praise and thanks addrest.
Descend thou, lovely Venus,
And happy hours grant us!
thanks, this means: Act 3 is ready for final editing !

And only one small role left before we can finish up. :9:

I have enough chorus voices already mixed together in that location.

Thanks, Todd

excellent assembly again and all PL ok. At the beginning I thought I had listened to this act already, but that was only because I listened to Alan's Zephyr only yesterday :lol:

One final act missing ! With a bit of luck we can still archive it this year. :9: You probably already assembled it all minus this missing man.

Here is the second man for act one. I also attempted to sync my voice with Nemo's voice during the chorus sections.

wonderful, Stefan, and thank you so much for this quick turn-around. You were the last character we were waiting for and now this play can get archived soon. :9: Maybe even this year...who knows ;)

Your second man is also sooooo despairing, really well fitting for the scene. You, Nemo and April will make a great trio of wailing chorus. 8-)

Thanks ! PL ok.

Todd: over to you !

Act 1 ready for final PL.

I also made the change you suggested at the end of Act 2, adding "Part 1" and "Part 2" to the interlude.

Thanks, Todd

NOTE: To my surprise, I really really liked this play. I had thought that it would be a dull recitation of classical speeches - but you all put so much emotion into the lines that it really came alive with passion. Probably what Moliere intended and what King Louis desired. I applaud you all.

Thanks, Todd

yes I think that was a good choice. :thumbs:

And act 1 is perfectly assembled as well. And you had a difficult job here with all the chorusses :shock: but it worked out well, they sound good together.

The first act is almost entirely taken over by the whining of the two sisters :lol: I didn't think it would take up so much space when I recorded my lines.

I can join in that. I felt the same when you came up with the idea, because I'm more a fan of the comedies ;) but yes, listening to it all now, thanks to our great cast, it was highly entertaining. Only the ballets and dances missing.... :mrgreen:

Both acts PL ok and that means, this one can get included on the finishing list for 2018. :9:

See you all in the next Molière !!!

Have you thoughts of Moliere's Don Juan. Unusual for Moliere but partially the basis for the Mozart opera.
