# Add some words before counters of enumerate environment in beamer

I want to change the default style of enumerate from

1. item1
2. item2

to

Stage 1. item1

Stage 2. item2

So I use

\setbeamertemplate{enumerate item}{Stage \arabic{enumi}.}
\begin{enumerate}
\item
\item
\end{enumerate}
\setbeamertemplate{enumerate item}{\arabic{enumi}.}

But I find that the position of the counter (enumi) is fixed while the word "Stage" is pushed to the left border of the slide (See the snapshot below).

So what can I do to have the enumerate counter display normally?
