Hi Algy! Looks like we are brothers on this one, a pair of aged Athenians 😸
Hope you are keeping safe and healthy.
Hi Alan

Thanks for the good wishes. We are doing quite well in this isolated outpost of the empire. I hope that you also are keeping safe and happy.

I am afraid that one of the few privileges that comes with age is the opportunity to play the role of an old codger.

Cheers

awww you make your voice so sweet and young here in this performance. Phaedria is kinda endearing, even though he seems not to be the sharpest knife in the drawer :mrgreen: Very accurately played out, I may add. Totally PL ok.

Thanks, Adrian. (You forgot your name in the voice credit of act 1, I'll make a note for Todd that it can be found in Act 2. No need to reupload)

Dorio for PL:

now here is totally the opposite in character from Phaedria. Dorio is a kind of sleaze, only caring for his profit. I love the scene with Adrian, I think it will be really good hearing you two together :thumbs: PL ok as well. Thank you, Nemo

hehe, Nausistrata is quite a woman who knows (and speaks) her mind. Excellently performed here, Eva, complete with a more aristocratic touch in your voice. I extremely enjoyed listening to this part. :9:

Act 4 is already PL ok but I have a note for Act 5:

> from 2:33-2:45: this is a repetition of an earlier speech and can be cut, what is missing here is the following: "Nay, that you may now know my determination. I neither forgive nor promise any thing, nor give any answer, before I see my son: to his decision I leave every thing. What he bids me, I shall do."

Thanks !

and here is Act 1 of Geta...phew, this guy is a big talker. And now reading through it all I have deja-vu :lol: There's one Molière play that is almost exactly the same plot. I think back then I played your role, Todd, if I remember correctly. :mrgreen:
