Helene Fischer Weihnachtsshow 2020

Normally Fischer’s annual Weihnachtsshow, one of German TV’s most popular festive events, would be an impressively glittery and glamorous extravaganza with guests and an enthusiastic live audience, but this year that wasn’t possible. To reflect this and the dramatic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the entertainment industry, the creative team wanted to do something radically different. They placed the artist in the huge empty Messehalle in Dusseldorf and filmed a series of intros and segues connecting a collage of “best of” clips from previous Weihnachtsshows which have been broadcast since 2011.

Lighting Designer Tim Routledge brought German LD Michael Kuehbandner onboard as lighting director to oversee the project in Dusseldorf.
