Here is Act 1 of Fife, the Muscovite Lady's servant, thereby proving the aphorism that Moscow girls make one sing and shout...

Clotaldo act 4

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/lifeisadream_clotaldo_4.mp3

I notice that this project is marked FULL even though it has open parts. Might this not deter new readers from looking into it. Pseudolus is also marked FULL even though you have reopened the main role. That might put readers off as well. :hmm:

Thank you. Guess I'm running too many plays at one time to keep things straight....

Thanks, Todd

Fife, Act 1 PL notes:
1:01 - 2-3 seconds of silence need to be added between "tempest baste you black and blue" and "there! I think in downright railing" because the narrator has a short line in between that needs to be added during editing

Note to editor: File is 92.2 dB. No clipping noted.

Clotaldo act 3

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/lifeisadream_clotaldo_3.mp3

A bit more to say in this act. There is a wonderful speech in here about the nature of dreams :9:

Oddly the original Spanish play does not have this speech, so presumably Fitzgerald must have written it himself, which may explain why it has echos of Shakespeare's "All the world's a Stage" speech.

Thank you.

I guess translators and editors sometimes like to write what they think the author would have liked to have written, rather than what they did...
