Welcome to the new home of Eurovision 2013. SVT have just published the first design drawing of the stage for Eurovision 2013.
The stage takes up a large portion of the arena floor and with the extended catwalk into the audience it is anticipated to bring the artists and audience together and create an “intimate and spectacular” show, according to Executive Producer Martin Österdahl.
The catwalk of the stage that the artists can use, will reach far into the audience and will be surrounded by the fans that have purchased standing tickets for the shows.
The designs have been submitted by the Eurovision Organisational Group that is made up of Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer; Christer Björkman, Show Producer; Christel Tholse Willers, Relations Manager, and Johan Bernhagen, Production Manager. The “scenographers” are Viktor Brattström and Frida Arvidsson.
What are your initial thoughts on the stage design?
