The video is part of an hour-long multimedia installation called Glass Handel. Next to live painting and music performance, the event also includes a number of opera music videos designed to be shared online. Tilda Swinton and her partner Sandro Kopp have directed a music video starring their five Springer Spaniels. The dogs race around a sandy beach while countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo sings the aria from Handel’s opera Flavio.
