Yesterday evening, after Poland closed the first day of rehearsals at the Olympic Indoor Arena, the left 'wing' of the stage collapsed at the upper axis point. As far as esctoday.com has been informed, nobody got injured.

According to Mr. Christos Panagopoulos, President of Greek broadcaster ERT, the damage can and will be repaired in the upcoming days and precautions will be taken to prevent the stage elements to break down again. He said that earlier this morning to esctoday.com. For the moment, the upper part of the left 'wing' has been removed.

The stage of this year's Eurovision Song Contest consists of six large 'wings', that can move up and down to create a unique setting for each performance. The construction has been created by the creative director of this year's contest, together with the UK-based company StageOne.
