The first live performance at the Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house in Barcelona, newly reopened after coronavirus lockdowns. A string quartet gave a performance of Puccini’s Crisantemi to an audience of 2292 plants. As you can see from the pictures, it was a full house, because plants have excellent taste, obviously. The plants were later adopted by healthcare workers.

@InvaderXan They turned the theater into a weed grow-op?

@InvaderXan So did they clap at the end, or just whisper in the wind? XD

@Photorat @InvaderXan i suspect it was in part done for acoustic reasons - an auditorium where all the seats are empty will usually sound different from one full of people (or, uh, plants) that absorb and disperse the sound.

@InvaderXan
Nobody:

Theatres: What should we do with all those empty chairs?
This specific theater: fill them with plants!
