  • After closing for three months, Barcelona’s El Liceu opera house reopened with its first concert on June 22 to an audience of 2,292… plants. The event took place the first day after Spain ended its state of emergency. Organizers said the intention was to reflect on the absurdity of the human condition in the era of the coronavirus, which deprives people of their position as spectators. All 2,292 plants (the theater’s full seating capacity) will be given to local healthcare workers as a sign of gratitude for their work during the outbreak. The concert was also streamed live on the venue’s website.
