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. 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.

  2. 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'.

  3. 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"

  4. 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。

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
