Opera House Concert Serenades Thousands of Potted Plants

On Monday, the El Liceu opera house in Barcelona hosted a special concert for 2,292 house plants. The event, organized by Spanish conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia, took place just as Spain lifted its three-month state of emergency. Reaffirming the value of art and music, the theatre kicked off its re-opening with this performance as a kind of roadmap for returning to normalcy.

Ampudia said the inspiration for the idea came from his getting back in touch with nature during the quietude of the pandemic. The plants will be donated to local health care workers as a token of appreciation for their hard work.
