Day Six

Today we started at the beginning of the show. It is really remarkable to hear the flow of the piece without stopping every five seconds. It is a wonderful translation and they've taken out so much of the confusing language and pronouns. The words and their delivery feel meaningful. The translation has a huge impact on the relationship of the audience to the story. Especially with the goal of a modern audience, but trying to preserve the nobility of the story, I think they've done a very good job. I think the audience will feel comfortable with the language and will relax into being told a story.
