The show grows on

Captured in The Daily Telegraph. "Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu opera live streamed a concert before an audience of plants to highlight what it called “the absurdity of the human condition in the era of coronavirus, which deprives people of their position as spectators”. After the performance, all 2,292 plants were given away free to front line hospital staff and care workers in Spain, who so far have dealt with 293,352 cases and 28,323 fatalities."
