The Noble Heart, by George Henry Lewes (1817 - 1878)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-noble-heart-by-george-henry-lewes/


This Victorian melodrama, written by G.H. Lewes, common law husband of novelist George Eliot (Marian Evans), featured a scandalous love triangle. The scene is set in 16th century Spain. The main character is Don Gomez del la Vega, a nobleman in service of his king battling the Moors. In the midst of a campaign, he and his son, the gallant knight, Don Leon, both fall in love with the beautiful Juanna, daughter of a merchant, who had pledged her hand in marriage to Don Gomez. How can the situation be resolved with honor being preserved on all sides? (Summary by Kelly S. Taylor)

I'd like to claim the role of Don Antonio in acts I and III but I this would be the first time I've recorded anything for the dramatic works section and I'm not entirely sure how to go about recording my lines. Just so I don't record it in some horribly malformed way, should I be recording all of the lines for both acts in a single file each and send those off as nobleheart_antonio_1.mp3 and nobleheart_antonio_3.mp3?
