Slowly and steadily things seem to be coming back on track despite the fact that COVID-19 still remains the neck-stuck-bone in our lives. However, for sure, things wouldn’t get entirely normal just like that so we need to make amendments with them.
Similar amendments were made for musician at the Opera house in Barcelona who were missing playing at the famous Barcelona Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house. So to ensure they get to practice their art, they decide to play nearly after four months.
However, they needed a crowd and that purpose was served by as many as 2,292 plants that filled the opera house as a very humble and quiet audience.
The mastermind behind the event was conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia.
As per the organisers, the idea behind the whole event was to offer people “a different perspective for our return to activity, a perspective that brings us closer to something as essential as our relationship with nature” after the “strange, painful period” that was the coronavirus pandemic.
Here is the video of the endearing performance:
Interestingly, all the plants that were brought in from nearby nurseries will be donated to healthcare workers in Barcelona.
The museum was called shut in the middle of March. Thereafter, the COVID-19 crisis got out of the hands of Spain. And when I write this, the country has more than 246k coronavirus cases and over 28k have lost their lives to the pandemic.
Nevertheless, like the strong country it is, Spain is getting back on its feet and the reopening of the opera house is a small but firm step forward.
