The Stage Directions:
Seems to be mainly announcing the scenes with a few actual directions scattered here and there. I think I found them all.
hehe, yes compared to Pinero, who leaves nothing to the imagination, the French stage directions are usually very basic. :lol:

Though (sorry :oops: ) you did miss one part in each of the acts unfortunately :(

Act 1:
> at about 0:23: (p. 255) in all the other Racine plays we included the introductory note as well.
Let's wait for Todd's confirmation, but I think you'll get to read this on top ;)

Act 2:
> at about 0:29: (p. 269) missed line: "to the guards"
> Checker also gives me a warning here that the volume is only 85.2 dB. You could amplify a bit as well

Act 3:
> at about 1:02: (p. 292) missed line: "Narcissus, aside"

Act 4:
> at about 0:37: (p. 304) missed line: "perceiving Burrus at the back of the stage"

Act 5:
> at about 0:29: (p. 315) missed line: "Scene 2. Britannicus, Agrippina, Junia"

thanks Larry, for the fast turn-around :thumbs:

well done again, David :clap: Britannicus sounds very sober, but still apprehensive of his precarious situation here. It's quite nicely conveyed by the way you portray him :) PL ok.

Thanks

Sonia
You're a very encouraging DPL, Sonia! Here's my part for Act 2:

Burrus awaits in the MW. If only I had counseled Nero better and made him into a better person. Alas....

you gave your best, alas, some people are incorrigible. I like the despair Burrus shows in the final act especially, when he notices how wrong it all went and that he is partly to blame. A great character, and convincingly acted out :thumbs: all 4 acts PL ok.

Thank you

Sorry to be slow in getting the corrections.
Let's just say things got a little rough here. (I'll spare you the details)

Here are the corrected files:

I'm sorry that you are going through a rough patch right now. Hope all is sorted out soon again.

Sections 2 and 4 are now PL ok.

Unfortunately sections 1, 3 and 5 are unchanged. Did you maybe forget to upload them ?

The following corrections are still outstanding:

Act 1:
> at about 0:23: (p. 255) please include the introductory note

Act 3:
> at about 1:02: (p. 292) missed line: "Narcissus, aside"

Act 5:
> at about 0:29: (p. 315) missed line: "Scene 2. Britannicus, Agrippina, Junia"

thanks

Well, that is baffling. Perhaps I didn't save the corrected ones, but I do hear that missing line there for Act 5, but I have checked these and uploaded again
