To Rose
Thank you for telling me about what Si and Zen said.
It is very interesting to know what they call each other and their children think of their parents.
As is often the case with most children with great parents, they don’t understand what wonderful artists their parents are!
They can’t imagine their father has a lot of enthusiastic fans even in Japan, far away from U.K.
I am looking forward to Simon coming and singing in Japan again and again.

For Emi:
This is very short, if I have time I will try to remember more.
About their children: that they don’t appreciate at all hearing their father singing at home – same as their mother exercising. They plead “Papa please stop singing” and then “Thank god we can go to School” :-))
Both Simon and Zen (they call each other Si and Zen) understand their attitude, Simon remembering his childhood.
Simon said he does not pity dancers because they knew what they chose. Zen explained how dancers are being pampered and cared for at the Royal Opera – opera singers do not receive such a treatment.

You may listen, just press the arrow!! But we from the continent (??) can’t download! Maybe Brexit already ;-)))

Hello, I am very interesting in hearing the interview, but I cannot listen, because I don`t get the download (error!). Is there an other way to hear it?
Thanks, Susanne

Thank you for the information! I would appreciate it if you would tell us what Simon and Zenaida talk about, for I live in Japan and cannot listen to BBC.
