Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment play with expectations of genre in this remake of Coldplay's hit music video 'The Scientist', featuring OAE Rising Stars alumnus, mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston singing Purcell’s tragic ‘When I am Laid’ from Dido and Aeneas. The result is a modern-day drama, recorded around London.
