It's not uncommon for performances at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house to be sold out, but musicians played to an unusual audience on Monday to markSpain'slifting of lockdown -- as thousands of plants filled its seats.

The event was the work of conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia and included a performance from the UceLi Quartet string quartet.

A total of 2,292 plants were packed into the theater, while the string quartet performed Puccini's "Crisantemi," according to a statement from the Liceu.

The opera house added in the statement that, following this "strange, painful period," organizers wanted to "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."
