A short video report was presented on RIK news offering a first glimpse of Christina Metaxa's preparations for Moscow where she will represent Cyprus with Firefly. Christina works daily on her act, together with choreographer Photis Nicolaou.
"As we draw closer, I feel stronger," says Christina, "I see the final image forming and I feel more ready". "We rehearse daily with Christina" states choreographer Photis Nicolaou, "it could be three hours or it could be six, and then she goes back home and works some more on her own. Any advice I give her, the next day she comes back and it has been corrected. This is happiness for me, easy, whatever I tell her she does!"
" We believe in the power of simplicity," states Mr Nicolaou. "We listen to the song, we take what the song gives us, its sound, its melody, Christina and the backing vocalists' voices and looks. Our presentation, this time, will be a really genuine "hello" from Cyprus!" he concludes.
Christina seems quite pleased with the way rehearsals are going: "That's why I am so pleased and you see me smile constantly," she says. "It's my style, it's what I love, what comes out of me effortlessly. I think something very beautiful will come out of this" says Christina confidently. The stage presentation will also include more than one surprises which have not been revealed.
Christina Metaxa will be accompanied on stage by her brother Nikolas Metaxas,who has also written and penned Firefly, Anna Karin Heliadou, Rihanna Athanasiou, Chris Charalambidi and Richard Hall.
