We are SO excited to bring you this special episode! Through the help of some friends of the podcast, we were able to interview former Takarazuka Revue member (Flower Troupe: 1981-1990) and current singer and vocal teacher Mitsuya Nao. Mitsuya-san graciously met with Caroline in Tokyo at the end of June to do the interview, which was conducted in Japanese. We were stumped for a little while: What would be the best way to present this for a podcast? Translate every line after it was spoken? Dub over it? We finally settled on subtitles, which is why this podcast is in mp4 video format.
Mitsuya Nao will be visiting New York City and performing a concert on July 24th at the Duplex Cabaret Theater. For more details, or to pre-order tickets, please visit: http://tinyurl.com/j6pyzyd
Note: To save on server space, we are moving our video podcasts to YouTube. Unfortunately, this means they will no longer show up in the podcast feed.
