Can you just explain the start of Zephyr
I'm sorry, but I don't understand this question. What are you having trouble with?

I heard the lypha's lines and she started with singing and them started to read

I see. You don't need to sing. She wasn't required to sing, either, but she chose to. Just read the lines that are ascribed to Zephyr, then scroll down and read the crowd lines. That's it! (Well, except for your voice credit, of course.)

The Minstrel act 9

There are two versions here as I could not make up my mind on this. The first one I prefer but I thought it might be too "uptempo" for a minstrel so the second is supposed to be more "minstrely". You can delete the one you don't want.
Both have improvised tunes although I think the first may be based on a traditional hymn :hmm:

Here is 'Sinbad' from Act 10 - He appears in three different scenes, all are here in one file - 26 minutes and 48 seconds long.
I hope that the fun I had with the part shows in the recording!

The file is https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/aladin_sinbad_10_128kb.mp3.

Happy Listening!

Act 1:
3:37 Text reads (p. 10): "He is not fit to bear much buffeting." I hear "He is not fear to bear much buffeting."

Act 5:
0:07 Missed your first line, p. 111, beginning: "The same, most mighty Sultan."

You know, I'm almsot disappointed that you had a quiet, off-stage death. I'm sure Morgiana's last words would have been memorable... and many! :lol:
Acts 1 and 5 fixed and reuploaded.
I agree that she had too quiet an exit... :lol:
But really, it's the staple of all young adult stories: How on earth would the youngster be able to go off on adventures if the parents were still around? And with fixed bedtimes to boot!
Cheers, Ava.

Both PL ok now, thank you! :D

Oh, she absolutely had to die, I agree. I just wish she could have done it onstage so she could have imparted some dying wisdom. :wink:

I look forward to listening to this play when it's complete! I've never appeared as so many different characters in the same play before. :lol:

Thank you!

Yes, well, I've never BCed a play that had so many characters in it! Much appreciated!

Wow, 26 minutes of just this one character! :shock: When this minor character makes a comeback in the final act, he doesn't do it by halves! :lol:

Thanks. I look forward to listening. 8-)

Thanks so much, Doug! Yes, I can certainly tell that you were getting into your role. :D I can't help hoping that he does get the position of Fool, and really, I think he deserves it, for fetching Aladdin's enemy in disguise, with the help of a wicked ghost! :lol:

There are just a couple of corrections needed. Nothing major. Good work!

0:35 OPTIONAL pronunciation note. This word is "quotha," and is a two-syllable word. I am hearing "quoth," I think. The meaning is understood, I think. I just have a special fondness for the word "quotha." :roll: :lol: Don't ask. But totally up to you to leave it or change it.
2:54 Text here (p. 265) reads "No fear of tumbling ever need perplex us." I hear "No feet of tumbling ever need perplex us." (Especially confusing because the whole conversation is about feet.)
12:38 Insert a space here for stage directions. (After "there must be laics, too.")
17:50 Text (p. 281) reads "...the wild vagaries fancy sometimes plays..." (vay-guh-reez) I hear "vagracies," which, so far as I am aware, is not a word. :hmm:
18:23 Insert a space here for stage directions. (After "good-day!")
21: 14 Insert a space here for stage directions. (After "ghost, I doubt!")
23:15 Text (p. 286) reads "we sons of clay." I hear "we sons of the day." (The "cl" does sort of merge together to look like a "d", but you can tell the difference if you zoom in.)

I am trying to think of the many potential uses for "quotha" in everyday life....

* "Quotha the Raven nevermore" in a rap version of the Poe poem?
* "Don't quotha me on this" said by a politician?
* "I'm sorry; you have already used up your cell service quotha this month"

I will be thinking of this all day - you have gotten my morning off to a good start.

Thanks, Todd

You post it in Listeners Wanted. viewforum.php?f=21

You'll see lots of examples to copy there.

Thanks, Todd
