You define [Mapping=tex-text] for the main (roman) font.
But Beamer uses the sansfont which doesn't have this mapping.

Actually Viola can use the --- notations as long as she remembers to activate the mapping:-)

BTW, please create a new e-mail for a new question, do not use reply.
This has nothing to do with critical editions.
