King Charles officially unveils the Eurovision 2023 stage

Moments ago, King Charles of the United Kingdom and the Queen Consort Camilla finished their VIP tour of the M&S Bank Arena, site of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest!

Of special note, King Charles ‘flicked the switch’ to turn on the stage to reveal all the lights and some effects the 37 competing nations will have as their backdrop when the competition begins on Tuesday 9th May. The set was revealed to a soundtrack of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest theme composed by Michael Nekrasov, a Ukrainian composer. You can hear part of it in the clip below:


At this point, the glimpse of the stage is just a tease, as closed rehearsals will start with the artists this Sunday. Fans will have to wait a bit longer until the second round of rehearsals before we see any footage of the stage in action with the artists.

The King and Queen Consort also got time to meet the hosts of this year’s Contest, as well at the United Kingdom’s artist, Mae Muller.

Tim Davie, Director-General of the BBC had this to say:

“It is an honour that His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort have come here today to reveal the fantastic staging for our Eurovision Song Contest programming. This set will be the focal point for all of the celebrations and we cannot wait to see it lighting up Liverpool and TV screens across the world.”
