Well, that is baffling. Perhaps I didn't save the corrected ones, but I do hear that missing line there for Act 5, but I have checked these and uploaded again
yes, now I can hear all the lines, including the intro-note as well. Sorry for the mix-up, I don't know why my previous file didn't include them. :? All three Acts now PL ok.

Thank you, Larry

Sonia

Here is Nero. Hopefully I caught most of the errors.
:shock: woah ! this is an absolutely outstanding Nero performance. :thumbs: I love the ambition, the wrath, the jealousy that you portray here in your very passionate narration. Wonderfully done, Dale, thank you so much.

I'll mark Acts 2, 3 and 5 already PL ok. Though careful with the volume, acts 3 and 5 exceed a little bit our upper limit of 92 dB. Too loud and you may run the risk of clipping. No need to reupload though, as there are are no lines missing, I'll make a note for Todd in the MW and he'll adjust the volume as needed in the final editing stage.

Two small snips for Act 4 though:

> at 4:51: (p. 309) repeat "But what will all the world say then of me ?" – could you cut out the faulty version please ?

> at 5:03: (p. 310) between "all honourable titles cancelled" and "leave me", you can delete the lengthy pause as it's the same speech chunk

thanks !

Sonia

Narcisus act 4

These people were appalling. He says that the supplier of the poison, in order to prove its effectiveness, killed a slave :(

Nice that we have made at least some progress as a civilization over the eons.

Thanks, Todd

yes I wouldn't have wanted to be the taster of food for these emperors either. :?

Awww and Narcissus is such a devious snake in Nero's ear. :evil: You're really the villain in this play, Alan. (you do it quite well actually :mrgreen: )

PL ok. Thanks !

oh yes, I definitely have a hunch that Berenice will be next ;) I am sure Todd plans to do them all, now that I got him infected with my love for Racine. :mrgreen:

And Narcissus is ending his career with a PL ok. He remains quite the schemer till the end I see. :? Well done, Alan, thank you.
