Every possible line in an act that is chorus would be chanted - not sung. I broke the Chorus roles in two so that when there are gender divisions in the words said I will end up with both variations. (Take a listen to part of the MW section "Chorus - Male, Act 1" by alanmapstone if you wish - he says he actually did a deep male and a high female variant.)

When I assemble the play, I will overlay the two choruses (as well as any principals also involved) and make the words synchronize. Or I might alternate lines between characters in the ensemble - don't know yet.

Thanks, Todd

Hi Michele - apologies for my delay in PLing this.

A few small things:

Act 1:

0:18 - Text is "Dramatis Personae", rather than the translated "Persons of the Play"
~2:35 - Missing "Recitative"
~9:50 - Missing "Chorus of Spirits"
10:22 - Text is "Chorus of Fiends" rather than "Friends"
12:45 - "Brindisi" cut off / long pause
~12:56 - Missing "Tutti"
13:04 - Extra "Alexis read by" after end of Act

Act 2:

~0:55 - Missing "Aria - Constance"
~1:57 - Missing "Aside to Aline"
~6:17 - Missing "Aline, wildly"

Hope these aren't too nitpicky - I wanted to note everything, just in case :)

Thanks!

Thanks! Just two tiny things:

Act 1:

Still has "Persons of the Play" at the top rather than "Dramatis Personae" - although I feel like that note may be stricter than necessary for Standard PL? The meaning is the same, after all. Could someone weigh in with a second opinion?

Act 2:

~6:28 - Still missing an "Aline, wildly". You have it in there once, but it's repeated for her next line as well. Page 268.

Otherwise all is well! Thanks again!

I think the PL notes are appropriate, but the first is optional - I can live with "Persons of the Play" if I must.

The missing "Aline, wildly" can just be the first copied (if it were a standard character line, it might have different inflections different times, but that is less likely as a narrator line). But I do need two of them if there are two in the script - I use the narrator track as the basis for the master file when I assemble the play and really depend upon the right number of lines being there.

Thanks, Todd

Sorry about that they are now both edited and hopefully should now be ok. Many Thanks
