    Ok, you’ve just blown my mind. I knew it was Klaus Nomi from the preview image, but as soon as the first notes of Michael Nyman’s theme from The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, Her Lover rang out, I nearly did a spit take.

    But I was wrong. Apparently, it’s the Cold Genius aria from Henry Purcell’s opera “King Arthur”. A quick search indicates some linkage between the two on Nyman’s part. Regardless, a great performance, leading to an interesting new piece of high brow trivia. Win/win.
