Krutoy: We want to show Belarus to the world

MINSK, 10 October (BelTA) – The major goal of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2nd European Games 2019 is to show Belarus to the world, composer, producer, People's Artist of Russia Igor Krutoy told BelTA.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the 2nd European Games 2019 will be prepared by the Russian company Art City 5 together with the Belarusian creative team. A cooperation agreement between the Belarusian State Philharmonic and the Art City 5 company was signed in Minsk on 9 October. The document was signed by General Director of the Belarusian State Philharmonic Alexander Garbar and general producer of the Art City 5 company Igor Krutoy.

“Our goal is to show Belarus to the world. I think we will succeed and everyone will be happy. The concept of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2nd European Games will reflect the spirit, unique culture, and traditions of the Belarusian nation. Belarus would like the show to be organized at the highest level, with the use of the most advanced technologies. For us this is an opportunity to gain more experience and to stay competitive as a company capable of implementing such projects,” said Igor Krutoy.

Production Director of the 2nd European Games 2019 ceremonies from Belarus Alexander Vavilov said that the cooperation with Russian counterparts will be fruitful. “I believe that we will do something extraordinary as one team. I am always afraid to talk about the things that are still in the plans. Anyway, the concept of the ceremonies will be centered on a person through whom we will tell the European audience about our country,” he said.

Production Director from Russia Aleksei Sechenov added that the work on the script is in full swing. “The most important thing is to show the history and the culture of the country, the inner spirit of its people. If we succeed, the opening and closing ceremonies of the sports forum will be sincere and clear to the European audience,” he stressed.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the 2nd European Games will last slightly over two hours. The interim results on the preparation for the ceremonies will be presented in spring.

The 2nd European Games will take place in Minsk on 21-30 June 2019. Over 4,000 athletes will compete in 200 medal events in 23 disciplines representing 15 sports. The forum is expected to welcome about 18,000 official participants. The competitions will be broadcast in 160 countries.
