A few photos from tonight.

The Crown Princess is wearing another recycled outfit from her visit to New York, and Prince Joachim again looks handsome in his pin-striped suit.

H.C. Andersen Fervor Hits Denmark

On Saturday, Denmark kicks off its bicentennial celebrations around author Hans Christian Andersen. The nation has entered fairytale frenzy and Denmark's leaving no stone left unturned when it comes to its native son.

His fairytales are classics around the globe and in Denmark he's a national hero. Now the author of "The Emperor's New Clothes," "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Mermaid" is being feted like royalty this year on the 200th anniversary of his birth.

It promises to be a year of all things Andersen in Denmark, and images, words, and performances around the 19th century writer are just about everywhere in this tiny Scandinavian country.

There are Andersen likenesses on coins, beer labels, dinnerware and baby clothes. Excerpts from his diaries have been published every day in one of the country's leading newspapers. A television series about the life of the writer as a young man ran in March.

On Saturday, a huge show will be broadcast in 15 countries from Denmark's national soccer stadium. It will feature performances by pop singer Olivia Newton-John, US singer Tina Turner, French musician Jean-Michel Jarre and opera Star Renee Fleming, among others.

The concert kicks off a string of 3,000 events worldwide that will run throughout the year which, according to the H.C. Andersen Foundation 2005, are aimed at broadening awareness of Andersen and his works beyond the "idealistic and narrow image of this fairytale writer for children of all ages."

Andersen statues will be unveiled in Vietnam; New York schools will hold fairytale competitions; and Australia will put their puppets to work in performances of Andersen stories.

"Two centuries after his birth, he is still not widely recognized as being the world-class writer he doubtless was, just as important a representative of the transition from Romanticism to early Realism as his -- incidentally well-known -- contemporaries Honore de Balzac or Victor Hugo," foundation secretary general Lars Seeberg told AFP.

A whole gaggle of celebrities are also getting in on the Andersen act. Roger Moore of James Bond fame and crooner Harry Belafonte have been tapped as goodwill ambassadors for the festivities, along with Chilean author Isabel Allende, several European royals and the first ladies of Mexico, Chile and Egypt.

Poverty to fame

Denmark's most famous author was born on April 2, 1805 in Odense, some 160 kilometers (99 miles) east of Copenhagen.

He was born into poverty, the son of a cobbler and a cleaning woman, but like his "Ugly Duckling," he rose above his birth, dying a famous and comfortable man in 1870 in the Danish capital.

While he is primarily known for his widely translated fairytales, he wrote 212 of them, he also penned 62 novels, dramas and other pieces of prose. In his spare time the prolific Dane also wrote 23 travelogues, four autobiographies, six biographies, more than 1,000 poems and dozens of articles and letters.

Although he eventually did gain fame in his home country, he was not an overnight success there when his fairytales were published. He first achieved renown in Germany and the rest of Europe before Denmark woke up to his talent.

German author Günter Grass, the 1999 Nobel Literature laureate who published a book of drawings based on Andersen tales, says he was influenced by the Dane's style of realism mixed with the imaginary.

"The tales, which often don't have a happy ending, show that he was in fact really writing for adults," he said.

In fact, many of his fairy tales are fairly morbid. In "The Little Mermaid," the mermaid becomes mute because a witch cuts off her tongue in exchange for legs to replace her fish tail. Other stories feature marital infidelity and life in a brothels. Death features prominently in several.

Andersen overkill?

For a few critics, all the attention lavished on the writer is a bit much. To John de Mylius, an associate professor with the Hans Christian Andersen Center at the University of Southern Denmark, said he regretted the "commercialization" of the writer, which in his mind, takes away from the focus on the poet Andersen.

"He has been smothered in a marketing campaign for Denmark," he told the Associated Press.

But the Danish government is standing behind the celebrations, and has, with the help of local sponsors, raised a budget of $41 million (31.8 million euros) to cover the costs of the jubilee. The government is calling it a "unique opportunity to strengthen Danish cultural tourism."

Denmark's popular queen, Margarethe, recently suggested that Andersen was one of the greatest Danes of all time, or perhaps at the very top of the list.

"He was exceptional," she said. "And Danes rarely are."

I have no idea where Joachim's been, he does seem a bit tan. Alexandra is very pretty. A big improvement from yesterday.

A worldwide birthday party will take place on the Danish writer’s birthday on April 2, 2005. The largest ever event of it’s kind will be broadcast live from Parken, the National Stadium in Copenhagen.

On April 2, 2005 it will be precisely 200 years since Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark. The much-loved writer will be celebrated by royalty, international guests, Hans Christian Andersen ambassadors and a crowd of 40,000 people in the national stadium, Parken, in Copenhagen. The show, Once Upon a Time, will be broadcast live to the world.

The show will be opened by Jean Michel Jarre and his interpretation of the fairytale ‘The Shadow’. Over 300 artists will follow his lead and grace the stage in a fairytale-like show that will celebrate Andersen and his magical universe. Pop-stars, classical musicians, performing artists and dancers are ready to kick off the birthday celebrations that will last the rest of the year.

Two action-packed hours of performance, music, film and dance await. Parken will be transformed into a spell-binding universe and provide a beautiful and festive arena for the many performers.

A wide variety of Hans Christian Andersen’s works will be interpreted in many different ways on the enormous stage by the different artists.

Hans Christian Andersen is known throughout the world and therefore the Once Upon a Time extravaganza will be an international show featuring stars from every corner of the planet. The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), together with the British production company Initial, are arranging the event and it will be broadcast live on the Danish channel DR1, as well as to the rest of the world through the European Broadcasting Union.

I really loved the dress Mary wore from the night before. very stylish! I do not like What Alexandra is wearing at all. While I love pink, those shoes were a bit much. From last night (or this night - getting a little confused with times :P): While Mary looked very nice, I personally think Frederik 'stole the show'. His outfit was a change from the suits and jackets he normally wears. I like it! :)

Yes it's one of her many Prada outfits. At least she's recycling them.

Over all, the royals look a bit jumbled in their attire. Women in fur coats, shiny body suits, unflattering pieces; some men with tie, others without, one in leather trench coat, one a bit too casually dressed. Looking at each royal one really couldn't guess the dress code.

In my opinion the most stunning royal lady of the evening was Princess Benedikte. While i'm not a huge fan of fur, I must say that her coat was absolutely stunning and well fitting, and she looks very regal and elegant.

Queen Margrethe looked elegant in her red outfit and her huge fur coat, while Prince Henrik reminded me of The Matrix in his leather trench coat.

Next up is Crown Princess Victoria, i'm not a fan of the big black (flower?) on her shoulder but the jacket color is lovely and she looks great. I also liked her white jacket from the morning.

I like Crown Princess Mary's jacket, the color is very rich. Her pants however is another story. Perhaps she has gained some weight, but her pants look a little bit too tight especially around the waist and thigh area. I also think the material doesn't fit the jacket. Ideally, I think the Crown Princess should have worn pants similar to Crown Princess Victoria's.

Princess Alexandra looked lovely overall, much better than the pink flower invasion outfit. However I dislike the cut of the jacket and the high-waisted skirt. The high cut of the jacket emphasizing the waist makes it look like the skirt was cut for an expectant woman, very unflattering.

Princess Laurentien....what was she thinking? It looks like she's wearing a body suit. The outfit is just loud and toooooo shiny. I also thing she over accessorized with the big earrings, the capelet, and the shawl. Prince Constantijn looked really handsome though.

I also thought that Crown Prince Frederik looked a little too casual, he looked like he was dressed for a nice afternoon lunch, not an evening event.

Very much so. And last night as well. Too marvelous for words. Here´s another article about the whole year of HCA:

AP

Danes are saluting Andersen, seemingly ever after


In recent months, Danes have lived in a true Hans Christian Andersen frenzy that some say has been no fairy tale.As his countrymen get ready to celebrate the bicentennial of his birth, the image of Andersen, who wrote such classics as "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Little Mermaid," can be seen everywhere - on coins, in post offices, on beer labels, on posters announcing shows celebrating the Dane, on dinnerware, and on baby clothes and accessories especially designed for the jubilee. Besides almost weekly reports about celebrations on April 2, his 200th birthday, some newspapers, such as Politiken, have run excerpts from Andersen's dairies every day since the beginning of the year.

On Saturday, a huge show will be televised worldwide from Denmark's national soccer stadium, which holds 38,000. The concert "Once Upon a Time," to be hosted by Danish-born actress Connie Nielsen, will include performances by pop singer Olivia Newton-John, opera star Renée Fleming, and others.The profits from the show will go to a Hans Christian Andersen foundation that works to eliminate illiteracy among children.The audience will include Denmark's popular royal family, government members, and a group of local and international Andersen ambassadors, especially tapped to promote Andersen's work worldwide.The corps of goodwill representatives includes actor Roger Moore, Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, novelist Isabel Allende, and entertainer Harry Belafonte. Other ambassadors include European royals like Sweden´s beautiful and lovely Crown Princess Victoria(okay, poster´s note:)), and the first ladies of Mexico, Chile and Egypt.The concert is the first of more than 3,000 events worldwide that will run throughout the year - from the unveiling of Andersen statues in Vietnam to fairy-tale writing competitions in New York schools to puppet theater performances in Australia to new translations of Andersen's writing in Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Arabic. John de Mylius, an associate professor with the Hans Christian Andersen Center at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, said he regretted the "commercialization" of the writer, which "takes away the focus from Andersen, the poet."

"He has been smothered into a marketing campaign for Denmark," de Mylius said. "The bottom line is how many tourists will come to Denmark afterward." The Danish government stands behind the celebrations. In the official jubilee program that also promotes Danish tourism and industry, economics and trade minister Bendt Bendtsen called them "a unique opportunity to strengthen Danish cultural tourism."

Andersen was born in 1805 in Odense, 105 miles west of Copenhagen, the son of a poor charwoman and a shoemaker. As in his own fairy tale, "The Ugly Duckling," he rose from poverty to fame. He died in 1875 in Copenhagen. Andersen wrote 212 widely translated fairy tales but also 62 novels, dramas and other prose, 23 travelogues, four autobiographies, six biographies, 1,023 poems, and dozens of articles and letters. His stories appealed to adults as much as to children, and many of his fairy tales are rather gruesome.

In "The Little Mermaid," one of his best known stories, the mermaid becomes mute because a witch cuts off her tongue in exchange for legs to replace her fish tail. In another tale, "The Two Baronesses," Andersen writes about marital infidelity and life in a brothel, of which he had personal experience when he lived in Copenhagen.To finance the bicentennial, the Danish state and local sponsors have raised $41 million. At the same time, Danish officials - from members of the royal family to government members - have tapped the nearly 100 goodwill ambassadors from more than 40 countries during ceremonies at home and abroad. A TV series about the writer as a young man was aired on public television in March. Last year, an 18-volume edition of Andersen's complete works was published.

The Little Mermaid, the hit animated movie from Disney, will be performed on a floating barge in Copenhagen in August. Another musical, written in English by American composer Stephen Schwartz, tells the story of Andersen waking up inside the fairy tale world he created.

Queen Margrethe, a graphic artist, designed the costumes and scenery for a play based on the fairy tale "Thumbelina," to be performed in Copenhagen's famed Tivoli gardens in July.

And, of course, there are trinkets and other merchandise.A series of commemorative $1.75 coins with one side featuring an adult swan studying its reflection in the lake - a nod to "The Ugly Duckling" - hit the streets in March.In Odense, the local brewery has made a special beer - H.C. Andersen 1805. A Copenhagen department store is selling an Andersen tablecloth with matching napkins.One of Denmark's oldest wine importers is selling bottles of Italian grapes with the label "H.C. Andersen Wine." It features the official jubilee logo: a folded red heart resembling a flying butterfly.

Crown Princess Victoria looked better during the concert than in the previous night. The jacket was fine but it looked big on her. It should have been smaller. It would have been better if she did something with her hair. The flower was also fine but it should have been smaller though.

I like Crown Princess Mary's jacket because the color is rich but I am not so sold out with the accessories on it. It looked different for me though. Her make-up was impressive and she looked lovely. For me, her pants looked tight and it would have been better in my own opinion if she wore a less tight one.

Princess Alexandra looked the most radiant among all the royal ladies during the concert. She looked lovely overall, better than the pink flower outfit she had the previous night. However I dislike the cut of the jacket. The high cut of the jacket emphasized her waist. Her heels were very stylish. Her look was lovely. Prince Joachim also looked very good!

Princess Laurentien looked like she was wearing a body suit. The color of her outfit was just too loud and also very shiny. Her earrings were also too big. Prince Constantijn looked handsome though. But she still looked good.
