The conductor who was meant to start the whole performance with The Man From Snowy River, loses all communication. “So, he had no cue to go, it goes completely dead,” Mark Beretta admitted to Botica’s Bunch on Monday. “In his words he said, ‘I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t’, so he put his baton up in the air and started the orchestra, and that was the start of the Opening Ceremony.” Mark Beretta during a documentary about the Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony to air tomorrow night.
