As Gran Teatre del Liceu reopened its doors after the three-month lockdown in Barcelona, it opened not for the people but for a huge crowd of plants during its comeback concert. 

A special performance was presented by the UceLi Quartet serenading a total of 2,292 potted plants with Giacomo Piccini’s piece called “Crisantemi.” The concert was aired live via the Liceu’s website.

The plants came from local nurseries and each was placed in every seat available inside the opera house.

Amid the painful season, Blanca de la Torre, Liceu’s artistic director, creator, and curator, offers an unusual perspective highlighting the importance of nature and expressing this through art and music.

The concert was dedicated to honor and recognize the health care providers during the battle against COVID-19. While the plants along with a certificate from the artist will also be handed over to 2,292 health care professionals of Hospital Clinic of Barcelona.
