SPAIN – After the failure of Gestmusic with the staging of Amaia and Alfred, public television has put all the meat in the spit by betting on Fokas Evagelinos for artistic direction
The Spanish venture of RTVE in ‘Eurovision 2019’ has a price. The staging that will accompany Miki with the song “La banda” will cost 40,300 euros to public television, as published by the Ministry of Finance through the hiring platform.
Failing to know in detail other expenses such as dinners, hotels, guests, office supplies or transport, public television has awarded the scenery of Miki to the Israeli television channel Kan. A staging in which Gestmusic will no longer participate as the company responsible for ‘Operación Triunfo’.
After the flood of criticism that Tinet Rubira received with his austere stage presentation of “less is more”, in which he bet only on a game of lights, RTVE has put all the meat in the spit by choosing the Greek Fokas Evagelinos to be at front of the artistic direction of “La banda”.
“I am very happy to be able to work with Spain at Eurovision 2019, Miki has a lot of talent and is a very smiling person,” said Evagelinos after hearing the news.
Fokas Evagelinos, who began his career as a choreographer in 1991, has achieved victory twice and has placed in the top 10 on ten occasions in the ‘Eurovision’ festival.
