What’s changed in Rehearsal Two?
Rehearsing right now inside the Ahoy Arena is Manizha, performing “Russian Woman” for Russia. Here is what has changed since the first rehearsal, and what the team thinks of the changes.
Manizha initially rolled around the stage in her giant coat in the first rehearsal. This time round, she’s not as chaotic, only going in and out of the middle of her singers. The backdrop features more religious iconography in the second verse. Manizha’s headdress is more tightly packed also from the first rehearsal, and we see the backing singers dressed in golden lyrca. The second half of the performance sees little change other than Manizha saying “We are ready for change, we are the change” at the end of the song.
In case you missed it…
