Arts on Air: An opera classic and teaching Indigenous texts

Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin was actually written for students, according to Hermiston, and not only demonstrates the lead characters’ singing strengths but also that of the chorus. Arts on Air spoke with some students about their characters, how they came to opera, and what it feels like to use their bodies as their instruments.
