Around 40 Swedish specialists to assemble Junior Eurovision stage

Around 40 Swedish specialists to assemble Junior Eurovision stage

MINSK, 27 August (BelTA) – Around 40 Swedish specialists will be employed to assemble the stage of the Junior Eurovision 2010 in Minsk, Producer of the Swedish company High Definition Resources Bo Wahlberg told media on 26 August.

Certainly Belarusian specialists will be used. There are also plans to employ Ukrainian ones. It will take around two weeks to assemble the stage at the 15,000-seat Minsk Arena.

A miniature copy of the stage that will welcome Junior Eurovision competitors from 14 countries on 20 November 2010 was presented to Belarusian reporters on 26 August. The design is based on ideas of Belarusian Teleradiocompany producers. The company is in charge of organizing this year’s Junior Eurovision. Blue floodlights of the stage have been prompted by the main color of Eurovision’s logo. The rest of the rainbow colors will be used as lighting decorations at the stage.

The stage will include several wing-like elements and round catwalk stages where performers and hosts will be. The “wings” have been inspired by the saying that Belarus is a land under white wings, said Bo Wahlberg. It is also a kind of a bridge connecting different countries. The stage designers refuse to talk about secrets of the green room where performers are supposed to wait for voting results.

A dance floor will be located in the pit stalls. All the elements will be supplied by Belarusian companies.

The show will use eleven cameras. According to Bo Wahlberg, the number of cameras is not important but what they can “see” is. The organizers believe that a camera on top of Minsk Arena will be used because the view is unparalleled.

The organizers promise to deliver a stunning show that will captivate both children and adults. According to Bo Wahlberg, Minsk Arena is so modern and fabulous, it offers all the opportunities to make an unforgettable show.
