    "How can this art form which logically seems preposterous, inspire such emotion?" The story of opera is explored on Monday's Arts Tonight, with Roger Parker, co-author, with Carolyn Abbate, of A History of Opera: The Last 400 Years (Penguin). We also drop in on rehearsals for Opera Briefs, a Royal Irish Academy of Music collaboration with the Lir, the National Acadamy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin, on a double bill of Benjamin Britten's Phaedra and Jake Heggie's For a Look or a Touch. The production, which runs from 25-27 March, 2013, at the Lir, is directed by Gavin Quinn and features singers Imelda Drumm and Owen Gilhooly and actor Daniel Reardon. See
