The Grand Final of the 59th Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Copenhagen in less than three months and the host broadcaster has already begun with the construction of the stage inside the B&W-Hallerne.
Things has begun taking shape inside the Eurovision venue as the first elements of the stage has been moved inside the B&W-Hallerne in Refshaleøen from the workshop at the Eurovision Island. Next thing to work on will be lightning and sound.
Søren Andresen, DR’s technical project manager for the Eurovision Song Contest, explained that the stage walls will consists of a skeleton of boxes in aluminium and iron. I will make sure that we will make good progress when building the stage, he says. I am the first person to arrive at the venue, and the last one to leave.
Anderssen is aware that the biggest challenge is all to come together before the first rehearsals set to take place in mid April, that’s why his team will double shifts in order to achieve it and he will exchange his desk at the DR’s headquarters for a mobile cabin on Refshaleøen at the beginning of March.
The DR team has been busy since August studying the complex, where until 1996 it was used to built ships.
The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Copenhagen for the third time on 6, 8 and 10 May.
