Barcelona Opera Reopens with a Concert Exclusively For Plants.
Yes, bizarre yet beautiful... Barcelona Opera Re-opens & Plants Replaced The Audience...
The Gran Teatre del Liceu, is an opera house on La Rambla in Barcelona, Spain. After more than 3 months of silence, Barcelona's Liceu opera is back in business as they reopened on Monday with a concert to an audience of 2,292 potted plants.
Spain was on 'state of emergency' for three long months, Europe got hit the hardest by COVID-19, with more than 28,000 deaths. Barcelona's Liceu's event took place a day after Spain's state of emergency came to an end!
According to theguardian.com, It was the work of Spanish conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia, who said the inspiration came from a connection he built with nature during the pandemic: ‘I watched what was going on with nature during all this time. I heard many more birds singing. And the plants in my garden and outside growing faster. And, without a doubt, I thought that maybe I could now relate in a much more intimate way with people and nature’.
