The show beings with a video of the Vienna Philharmonic playing music by Mozart and Beethoven in the Garden of Schönbrunn Palace. The journey continues through the beautiful cities and landscapes of the country accompanied by specially composed music by David Bronner.

During the journey we meet hundreds of locals, young and and old, finishing in Vienna when the Sphere - theme artwork for this year’s contest - floats through the roof of the the arena. Then we can hear Udo Jürgens’ Mercie Cherie - the very first Austrian Eurovision Song Contest winner.
To reveal even more - the sphere will take different forms during the shows, from oversized glass beads to human-formed circles! The clip that starts in Vorarlberg is currently being produced across Austria by West4Media.
Wondering how the show performances will look like? Check it out in our article about just the interval acts!
