Barcelona’s Liceu Opera opened to a full room of house plants. All 2,292 seats were packed with a leafy plant. It was the opera’s first concert since mid-March.
The string quartet serenaded the audience with a lively performance of Giacomo Puccini’s “Crisantemi” that was also live-streamed all over the world.
The plants were donated from local nurseries and were subsequently delivered to 2,292 frontline healthcare professionals, specifically at the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, accompanied by a certificate from the artist who conceived the project, Eugenio Ampudia. [source]
The concert is an initiative of the Liceu and the artist, together with the Max Estrella Gallery and the curator Blanca De La Torre.
