In the Liceu opera house in Barcelona, a string quartet gave a Puccini concert to an audience of 2,292 potted plants.
The concert, held the day after Spain lifted their lockdown, is the brainchild of conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia. According to The Guardian, he was inspired by the connection he made with nature during his home confinement: "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."
After the concert, all 2,292 of the plants were donated to healthcare workers as a sign of appreciation.
