"Welcome, Beauty, banish fear, You are queen and mistress here; Speak your wishes, speak your will, Swift obedience meets them still.”
Here are a few audio gifts for Romeo et Juliette Week! Please let me know if you have any problems with the download links.
First, here’s a tracked version of the DVD proshot audio, which I downloaded from a Russian fansite. The official highlights CD recording is still somewhat available, so I’m not going to upload it publicly (although if you can’t find it to buy, drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do), but the DVD audio covers the entire show, which is nice for the obsessive among us and anyone who wants to listen to “Ez a kéz utolér” on infinite repeat 500 times. :-)
Cast: Dolhai Attila (Romeo), Szinetár Dóra (Julia), Bereczki Zoltán (Mercutio), Mészáros Árpád Zsolt (Benvolio), Szabó P. Szilveszter (Tybalt), Janza Kata (Lady Capulet), Csengeri Ottília (Lady Montague), Csuha Lajos (Lord Capulet), Németh Attila (Prince of Verona), Náray Erika (Nurse), Homonnay Zsolt (Paris), Földes Tamás (Friar Laurence)
Second, an untracked audience audio, 1 mp3 per act, from 2011, which was posted publicly in a now-defunct fan forum. This is mostly the same cast as the proshot, but offers a chance to hear a few different people, and possibly the only chance to hear Bereczki Zoltán’s Mercutio and Kerényi Miklós Máté’s Benvolio interact. The audio quality is fairly good.

Making of Roméo et Juliette 2010
The Scarlet Pimpernel Fancast: Holliday Grainger as Marguerite Blakeney"But Lord Blakeney loved you Margie," he murmured.
"Loved me?—Well, Armand, I thought at one time that he did, or I should not have married him. I daresay," she added, speaking very rapidly, as if she were about to lay down a heavy burden which had oppressed her for months, "I daresay that even you thought—as everybody else –that I married Percy because of his wealth—but I assure you dear it was not so. You see, he seemed to worship me with such a curious intensity of passion, it went straight to my heart. I had never loved any one before, and I was five-and-twenty then so I naturally thought that it was not in my nature to love. But it had always seemed to me that it must be heavenly to be loved blindly, passionately, wholly. In fact—the very fact that Percy was slow and stupid was an attraction for me, as I thought he would love me all the more. A clever man would eventually have other interests, an ambitious man other hopes.. I thought that a fool would worship me, and think of nothing else."
