Paralympic Games' opening ceremony feels better that it's Olympic Games counterpart, as always...
Looking forward to the ceremony tonight.

Looks like the lighting of Paralympic cauldron would likely be the same as Rio...

It is a beautiful cauldron. What is your best cauldron?
In all the ceremony to me was just ok. As mentioned multiple times it was disjointed, but I didn’t hate it. Met my expectations. Was hoping for more but oh well. With the late changes to the ceremonies team and the unpredictable pandemic situation, it was bound to suffer.
To me the best ceremonies have a continuous thread and clear narrative without being overly interrupted by protocol segments. No real wow moments in Tokyo except for maybe the drones but too bad it was connected to the corny Imagine song (although well-performed).
In my opinion, the best cauldron design is the one from London 2012.

Still eager to see what the cauldron will look like. I will admit, while I'm all for environmental conservation and lowering down CO2 levels and such, I miss the big cauldrons that you'd see tower above stadiums. Pyeongchang 2018 was the last one (for now?)
Beijing's cauldron wasn't look that big to me...

But if you look at the cauldron in the photos it appears to be surrounded by two different circles of mirrors. The interior ring does not seem large enough to allow the pillar to expand out to a petal. The use of mirrors at that height leads me to believe that it will be vertical tower design. Like how SLC cauldron was ignited, but the "stem" stays lit.

I have strong guts that the cauldron design will be a flower like, with its petals surrounding the flame, i think it's connected to the torch design (sakura).
I was thinking about that as well.
Potential cauldron design for 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
I started to worry about Olympic Games would be cancelled or not...

I wish 2022 Cauldron would taking some inspiration from 2008 cauldron...
