It was a little bit of a challenge but here are the roles for Books 4-6 that I e-mailed earlier but now divided to be done from anywhere from 4 to 8 readers. This involved dividing Dido’s earlier solo role in Book 4 to two parts, Dido-A and Dido-B.

Also thanks to Andrea for pointing out that Jupiter speaks lines 303-324 in Book 1 and not King Iarbas. The roles below correct this and also assign a few extra lines to Aeneas’s role in Book 6 as suggested by Andrea.

Please don’t worry if this seems confusing, as far as readers are concerned, you will get instructions on exactly what lines you have to read. I always have my book marked up so that I can steer things along in case of confusion.
