The late 19th/early 20th century explorer Isabelle Eberhardt’s life was short – but full of adventure. Now, she’s the subject of a brand new opera. Today: the story of the Russian nihilist’s daughter who traveled North Africa dressed as a man – and the songs she’s inspired. Plus, the composer, vocalist, filmmaker and MacArthur Fellow Meredith Monk joins us with a new remix album.
