The Attalus parts in. A part that seems to exist solely to make Creon's villainous monologues into a somewhat more :P :P organic set of conversations. :)

:lol: yes agreed. And he is a bit of a sycophant in his replies. But in the end he genuinely seems to care for him. Well Creon is his boss so it's probably understandable :mrgreen:

Excellent job, Adam, thank you so much. Acts 4 and 5 are straight PL ok. I especially love the final outburst. :thumbs:

Two corrections for Act 3 though:

> for the voice credit, please always refer to the MW and read the whole description, here: "Attalus, confidential friend of Creon, read by Adam Bielka"

> at about 1:20: (p. 38) missed the final lines for this act:
"More than aught else you have yourself to dread,
Remorse may torture brows that wear a crown."


thank you

oh villmols merci :thumbs: (better switch back to English though, for the benefit of our monolingual editor in chief :mrgreen: )

There is a tiny discrepancy, which I think is significant though, as I think without this word the sentence is not complete:

"More than aught else you have yourself to dread,
Remorse may torture brows that wear a crown."

Ahh! Annoying to mess up the same line twice in a row! This is turning into another Bingle! : :cry: "aught else" is just such an non-inintuitive way of phrasing things! :wink:

what, you mean to say you don't use this expression in your everyday speech. I cannot think of aught else that would convey the meaning of this :mrgreen:

It's PL ok now ;)

Act 1 of Eteocles awaits in the MW. I made him a proud and pompous imperial with a disdain for peace. I would easily have said aught else if the line had come my way. (Looks down nose at the mere mortals licking his boots.)

I am glad my brother and I get along better than Eteocles and his brother!

Thanks, Todd

:lol: I must have done something wrong in your upbringing.

Yes you sound a right pompous king here throughout the whole scene. Wonderfully performed and I think your part in the dialogue with Jocasta will sound great. (is this a way to treat your mother ? :evil: ) Looking forward to Act 2 !!! This one is PL ok in any case.

I think even Cain and Abel got along better than those two :lol:

Thank you

a very touching soliloquy in the 3rd act, excellently acted out, full of emotions. I nearly wept with you. Thank you Lydia, these two are PL ok :)

Eteocles, THE one and only true king of Thebes, awaits your PL in the MW.

Thanks, Todd (Rex)

:lol: someone really has the need to assert himself here. Well, my dear, it's a mother's right to box you on the ear if needs be, REX or not. :mrgreen:

You sound excellently regal even in your unrelenting hubris. I especially love the tone of voice when you speak about your undying hatred for your brother. Very aptly conveyed, spitting venom almost. :thumbs: Well done.

Totally PL ok.

thanks

Sonia (Mater Regis - or for the monolingual: Mama Rex)

As we are nearly done here, I figured Hemon ought to make an appearance sooner rather than later. :P
