Dingle Yandell and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment present ‘What Power Art Thou’ from Purcell’s King Arthur in a film inspired by Gotye
Purcell's Power Art Thou
Orchestra of The Age of Enlightenment
In it we see front man Thom Yorke submerged underwater for a nail-bitingly long length of time, musing on the banality of life. “That looks dangerous,” thought Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. “Let’s do that…but with Handel.” The orchestra play with expectations of genre in this remake of Radiohead’s 'No Surprises' with Handel’s ‘Cara pianta’ from Apollo e Dafne. The breathtaking underwater feat is taken on by baritone James Newby, who is an alumnus of the OAE’s Rising Stars of the Enlightenment singers’ scheme.
