Barcelona opera reopens with performance for more than 2000 potted plants

Barcelona’s El Liceu opera house reopened on Monday with a concert to an audience of 2,292 potted plants. The event took place a day after Spain’s three-month state of emergency came to an end. 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’

  1. Yg nonton video ini stlh nonton porcast Deddy sm Sofiyan Djallil, like nya manaaa… 😁😁😁

  2. Porque dan dinero publico a un egocéntrico sin sustancia cuyo único mérito es trabajarse bien una red de contactos de alto nivel y sus subsidarios obsecuentes ?!?!??
    Que aporta intelectualmente?!?! Realmente, nada. Suma al empobrecimiento cultural, un estupido, rodeado de hipócritas y estúpidos, que nos estupidiza a todos con ayuda pública.

  3. Add some 'blue rinse' and you'd hardly notice the difference. Particularly considering the played selection. Reopen to Bizet's "Carmen" lets get those leaves a clapping and the roots a stompin'.

  4. Copia lamentable. Esto ya se hizo en los 70. Ampudia es un verdadero
    payaso, rey del hampartismo más zafio y barato que ha podido crear la
    humanidad. Una lástima que el Licéo y algunos museos se denigren
    presentando "su obra"

  5. 日本を含め世界各地で新型コロナウイルス感染症(COVID-19)が感染拡大し、死亡者が多発していますので、下記の指導会は廃止にしてください。この会社の指導会やセミナーのたびに新型コロナウイルス感染症(COVID-19)が感染拡大し、死亡者が多発しています。
    会場:イベントホール レ ルミエール(新大阪ワシントンホテルプラザ2階) 

  6. O infrator da nova infecção por coronavírus (covid-19) é Mitsuko Ishii (Inoue) de Yoshida, Yoshinogari-cho, Kanzaki-gun, Prefeitura de Saga. Por favor, castigue esta mulher estritamente.

  7. The offender of the new coronavirus infection (covid-19) is Mitsuko Ishii (Inoue) of Yoshida, Yoshinogari-cho, Kanzaki-gun, Saga Prefecture. Please punish this woman strictly.

  8. lo mas hermoso,saludo la iniciativa. quien se burle de esto, es un estúpido que no siente nada, solo en si mismo.

  9. Very appropriate considering the global classical music crowd is in a vegetative state 24/7 regardless

  10. To be honest with you, the way some audiences are these days they might getter a better response from the house plants. I’m seated second row. I couldn’t see much thanks to the Kentia Palm sitting directly in front of me. So thoughtless!
