Every participant of the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest will have an individually designed stage image. The play of light, moving stage elements and latest technology special effects during the participants' performances will create a unique mysterious show atmosphere that will be introduced for the first time at the Eurovision Song Contest.
This year's stage is extremely intelligent, with way more technological advantages and know-how's than ever before. It contains hundreds of elements that revolve, twist, flip and spin according to the rhythm and spirit of the music. Sparkling stars of the romantic night sky can turn into the hot desert sand-dunes or waterfall splashes in a flash. Every song will have its story, its unrepeatable sensation and emotion.
“The Rolling Stones would kill for such a stage!” says Ola Melzig, Production Manager of the Spectra Company. Spectra has been providing lighting and broadcasting of the Eurovision Song Contest for the last five years and is an obvious leader in this sphere.
Ola Melzig assures that the 50th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is to become the most spectacular and impressive Song Contest in the history. Hundreds of people are working setting on the 80-ton video and lighting equipment and designing stage images and programming the stage for the startling show.
“Stage images have already been chosen for the 39 songs of the Eurovision Song Contest,” Ola Melzig continues. “It's a surprise we have prepared for the singers. During the first rehearsal in Kyiv they are to meet their new stage image: still or moving, soft or hard, red or green and so on. Such highly intellectual stage is our know-how and we are proud to present it in Kyiv.”
