Marvin Dietmann has been revealed as the Artistic Director for Albina’s performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.
The Croatian Head of Delegation Uršula Tolj has revealed that Marvin Dietmann is the Artistic Director of the Croatian performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Speaking to Jutarnji List, Ms. Tolj explained:
The idea of the costumes themselves remains the same, but with minor modifications. Her dancers plan to use all three stages in the Dutch Ahoy Arena: the main stage, auxiliary stage, and the part intended for ‘catwalk’. All this, of course, will be coordinated with the stage director of the performance, Marvin Dietmann, a professional who worked for many Eurovision singers, and at Dora, he was in charge of creating the stage performance of Albina’s competitor Bernarda Brunović.
Marvin Dietmann is also staging the performances of:
- Austria – Vincent Bueno
- Bulgaria – VICTORIA
- Cyprus – Elena Tsagrinou
- Czech Republic – Benny Cristo
- Spain – Blas Cantó
Albina will perform in the second half of the first semi-final on May 18 with the song “Tick-Tock”.
