Watch | Barcelona opera house reopens with a concert for plants

On June 22, Barcelona's El Liceu opera house reopened with its first concert to an audience of 2,292 plants. This unique concert was organised a day after Spain lifted its coronavirus lockdown.

The idea came from conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia. The purpose was to get people to reflect on sustainability and their relationship with nature. After the concert, all the plants were to be donated to healthcare professionals working on the frontlines against the virus. Spain is one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus.
