Carmen by Prosper Mérimée (1803 - 1870). Translated by Mary Lloyd (1853 - 1936)


Quote:
On a trip to Spain in 1830, our narrator recounts his encounters with two strange characters: a thief named Don José Navarro and a beautiful Romani woman named Carmen...little does he know that soon, these two will be entangled in a tumultuous love affair that spells out tragedy for both parties.

This novella, written and first published in 1845, has been adapted into a number of dramatic works, including the famous opera by Georges Bizet (which retells, with some changes, the story of Chapter III).

Note: This story contains quite a few colloquialisms and terms annotated in the source text. Please reference these notes as desired. (Mary Kay and Wikipedia)








    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2465
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I would strong recommend recording a 1 minute test before you take on any projects! I'll reserve the part for you, but please come back with your OKed PL test and I'll put you in the MW.

Good, Mariana! I put a note in the MW, please select a name to use in the Catalog (many use real names, but you may use your forum name), you also may, if you wish, to link your name to your web site. Then the MC will set you up; meanwhile you may start recording your chapter!
