Don Garcia of Navarre, or the Jealous Prince by Molière (1622 - 1673). Translated by Henri van Laun (1820 - 1896)

Nothing can be more unlike The Pretentious Young Ladies or Sganarelle than Molière's Don Garcia of Navarre. The Théâtre du Palais-Royal had opened on the 20th January, 1661, with The Love-Tiff and Sganarelle, but as the young wife of Louis XIV., Maria Theresa, daughter of Philip IV., King of Spain, had only lately arrived, and as a taste for the Spanish drama appeared to spring up anew in France, Molière thought perhaps that a heroic comedy in that style might meet with some success, the more so as a company of Spanish actors had been performing in Paris the plays of Lope de Vega and Calderon, since the 24th of July, 1660. Therefore, he brought out, on the 4th of February, 1661, his new play of Don Garcia of Navarre. Molière wished to create a counterpart of Sganarelle, the type of ridiculous jealousy, and to delineate passionate jealousy, its doubts, fears, perplexities and anxieties, and in this he has succeeded admirably.
( Translator Henri Van Laun)
  • Not the usual Moliere comedy. Prepare for passion and tears.

    1. Is there a deadline?
      We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    2. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6740
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

May I read Eliza please?

(Personally, I feel more aligned with Donna Elvira's views on jealously, but that girl just talks too much!) :D

my love interest !!! thanks Leanne.

For the voice credit, the best is always to refer to the MW: "Don Alphonso, Prince of Leon, thought to be Prince of Castile, under the name of Don Silvio, read by Leanne Yau". I know...a bit long this time :lol: you should have heard mine !

[The sweat drips down his forehead...]
I haven't been around much lately, and I'm shocked the lead is still unclaimed. With a bit of angst, I would like to claim the Role of Don Garcia. This will be a stretch for me, patience and tolerance please.

Kurt !!! there you are again: I already thought some rattlesnake had gotten the better of you on one of your tours. Glad to see you around again, and of course you can have a stab at Don Garcia. He is not the most pleasant person around I fear :lol: But I'm sure you can manage. Now get those old dusty Spanish costumes down from the attic and start recording :mrgreen:

Thanks

Sonia
