The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) along with France 2 have just revealed the stage design for the 19th edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which will be built at La Seine Musicale in Paris for the Grand Show on December 19, 2021.
The stage was designed by Miguel Hernando and it will take around seven days to mount it. The stage is 20 meters long, over 30 meters wide, on an area of 375 m2 of curved screen. The main screen is 7 meters high.
A public by 3,250 spectators will be allowed to be present at the arena, with 1,000 people in front of the stage, but this may change depending on the health restrictions. 300 people will work on make possible the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
“We wanted the perfect combination between the magic of Christmas and the lights of the host city, as Paris is the true city of lights. All of that makes Europe dream”, ensures Alexandra Redde-Amiel, director of entertainment and varieties of France 2, but also head of the French delegation for Eurovision. “Children are the stars,” she continues.
The Green Room will be divided in two parts and it will be located on the sides of the stage with a clever way simulating the Alexander III Bridge, one of the most emblematic constructions of Paris.
“These green rooms that we used to see behind the scenes, we really wanted to show them off. The stage will evoke the famous small rooms that will welcome the artists after their performance, and that will be located on the bridges that can be seen in the garden and in the courtyard. A bridge that evokes the Alexander III Bridge”, explains Alexandra Redde-Amiel.
