The “concert for biocene” was possible due to the end of the state of emergency in Spain.
Opera Gran Teatre del Liceu has performed its first concert since the coronavirus lockdown. But it was unusual because the audience consisted of 2292 plants instead of people! They came from local nurseries and will be forwarded to Spanish healthcare workers.
The Spanish artist Eugenio Ampudia came up with this extraordinary idea. As he said, “he wanted to provoke reflection on our attitude to nature and influence of the lockdown on public places.” The opera authorities said in a statement that this concert is a symbolic act that defends the values of art, music, and nature. This unique performance has been recorded and can be viewed on the website. The campaign aimed to draw attention to how difficult the coronavirus pandemic was for the inhabitants of the city, as well as the artists who were taken away the opportunity to work.
