On Monday the Liceu opera house in Barcelona captivated the audience’s attention. After three months of lockdown it finally had a full house—of plants. Its 2,292 seats each held a species of flora from a local nursery. The green hall was serenaded by the UceLi quartet, as a prelude to its 2020-2021 season. Featuring Giacomo Puccini’s “Crisantemi” the audience vibrated in tingling awe.

Each plant will then be donated—along with a certificate from the artist— to 2,292 health care professionals from the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona.

“After a strange, painful period, the creator, the Liceu’s artistic director and the curator Blanca de la Torre offer us a different perspective for our return to activity, a perspective that brings us closer to something as essential as our relationship with nature,” according to a release on the Liceu’s website

An ode to nature. An ode to a different relationship with nature. An ode to leave the anthropocene and enter the biocene instead.

*Did you know that in Japan several food producers believe that classical music vibrations help plants grow better.
