Here are the audiofiles for the part of Olympia: Acts I, II, III and V, respectively.
thank you, Lisanne, this was an absolutely great dramatic performance. Olympia has the needed gravitas and sorrow displayed. I loved the performance. :9: Careful with your volume though, sometimes you have clipping, it's best not to have that too often, it could distort the audio. But it's ok in this one, no much harm done.

Acts 2-5 already PL ok.

Only one note for Act 1:

> for the voice credit, please always say the full description as marked in the MW: "Olympia, confidential friend of Jocasta, read by..."

thank you

Sonia

Here's Antigone for Act 1!

thank you, Lydia, absolutely lovely performance as well. Antigone already shows the rebellious spirit here in the first act. Great job, loved it. :thumbs:

I'll mark it PL ok, although there is a part of the voice credit missing: you forgot to say "read by Lydia" (which is the whole point of the voice credit :mrgreen: )

But since there are no other errors, no need to reupload, please include the full voice credit in the second act :) I'll make a note for Todd in the MW.

oh and you really don't need 45 seconds of silence at the end, you can keep the files shorter and smaller if you only leave the standard 5 seconds ;)

thanks

I'm so thrilled to see what great dramatic talent you all display for tragedy :9: Antigone is again excellently portrayed, so full of life and despair. Wonderfully done, Lydia.

Only found a small textual error:

> at 1:27: (p. 19) "all that was done for him was done for me" - you say "done to him" which conveys a bit of a different image

the rest is perfect, thank you

Here's the introduction and stage directions for acts 1-5.

In some acts, there is only one person present. For those, I've read the actor's name at the beginning so that the listener knows who is onstage at the opening of each act. Todd can ignore those if he doesn't feel they're needed.

Polynices act 2
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/thebaid_polynices_2.mp3
wow :shock: great job here, Alan, you can be really fierce if needs be. :thumbs: Polynices is quite enraged in this act, I loved the performance. Looking forward to a heated dialogue between you and Todd :mrgreen:

Only found one small note to edit:

> at 4:06: (p. 24) "you yourself are changed" - you say "charged" but he means that her affections have changed towards him

The rest is perfect.

The situation here is not ideal, but we try to cope as best we can. Let's hope happier times are ahead again soon. Hope you are well :)

thank you

yes that was well done, actually the book lists this one character as well at the beginning of each scene, so we will include them naturally. :thumbs: Excellent job, the hardest part was not to miss the rather sparse stage directions inside the text. Compared to Pinero, this one was quite short. :mrgreen:

All acts PL ok. :clap: Thank you so much, Michael. Now Todd can start assembling the bits we already have in.
