Are there any more Racines to come :hmm:
Oh yes indeed. Here is the list I have sources for.
Bérénice (1670)
Bajazet (1672)
Mithridate (1673)
Iphigénie (1674)
Phèdre (1677)
Esther (1689)
Athalie (1691)
Thanks, Todd
:thumbs:
Athalie is, I think, his best play.

Here's my final recording for this play. "Britannicus" marks the first time I'm portraying a title character, so I'm excited to hear the play when it's finished.

and you finished your first major role quite brilliantly, David :thumbs: Act 5 is also PL ok. I am also looking forward to hearing the entire play. Only two more roles missing.

Meanwhile...I hope to hear you in other plays again soon ;)

thank you

After patiently waiting her turn to be edited, Agrippina is ready for PL:
thank you so much, Mattea, Agrippina is wonderfully forceful, a true classic Racine heroine. :thumbs: You were perfectly cast for the role.

Acts 1 and 5 are already PL ok.

Act 3:

> at about 3:10: (p. 290) you forgot the final speech (12 lines) starting with "Trust your suspicions less..."

Act 4:

> at 0:31: (p. 300) "my ancestors, whom Rome has deified" - you say "defied", which is quite the contrary to "deified" ;) for pronunciation, see here: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/deify#English

thank you

Todd: Act 1 has all actors in, bar the voice credit for Junia.
