Three magicians:

They're so magical that they can merge their voices to make it sound like only one person is speaking. :wink:

Could I play Myrtil? I feel the need for thespian over-acting.

awww what a love-sick puppy he is. :mrgreen: a highly melodramatic performance in some parts, Adrian. :thumbs: Molière would have been dead chuffed.

Act 1 is already PL ok.

However there is a missed speech in Act 2:

> at about 3:25: (p. 315-316) 8 missed lines, starting from "What ! Am I to invoke the aid of oaths..." till "...to seal the oath with transport of this fair hand."

> also, not really important and highly optional to delete, but I noticed a silence of 17 seconds at the end :shock: which is not really necessary

thank you and in case you want to play another lover, may I point out that this project has TWO pastorals, so you are free to claim a role in both if you wish. Two more lovers are waiting for a reader ;) (this comment only in case you haven't noticed...if you have, ignore the shameless advertising :lol: )

Sorry, I mistakenly pasted in part of a piece of music by John Cage.

Sure, Sign me up for Lycas. It's only a short speaking part. I suspect my most important part happens in scene X.
I've got the tights and I'm working on the choreography. How much silence do you want me to record for this?

:thumbs: missing lines all in now and PL ok.
:lol: Lycas has a tendency to be his own echo in the beginning. And this dying scene at the end is unvoluntarily funny. I am curious how this will sound assembled together.

Also PL ok, thank you so much !

as I don't know Cage, the joke is probably lost on me but I definitely didn't hear any music there. Must have been a sound frequence my ears don't pick up.
