    Lima 2019

    The Pan Am Games were covered by 2 closed paid channels, by free on digital platforms and one open national TV channel, so many people had access to watch the Pan Am Games. The open national TV Channel that covered the games was sucessful in rating nubers at the time they aired the Games... it did not transmited the Closing ceremony (but did all the other platforms) since it was the time of its Prime Newscast. Nevertheless, at the time of the Handover presentation they transmited live from Peru... It does not have to do with the audience who watched the closig ceremony, but only organizers who relied in a Producer company who doesn't know how to work on international events...

    As a fan of the Olympics and ceremonies, I have the obligation to say that Santiago handover was the worst I ever seen!!! for any event worlwide: They gave that "task" to a Chilean producer company which was the same that created the horrifying opening ceremony of 2015 Copa America... Indeed it was NOT and handover, but a coreography and a mini concert... I have got the information that that producer company, called "Icardi" (keep it in mind), DID NOT ANYTHING and gave all the creation and poerformance to Power Peralta pop-dance duo who, clearly, in their lives have never watched how a handover is.... We started walking completely with the left foot... We had fresh in mind the recent handover ceremonies: Lima in Toronto and Tokyo in Rio... But Santiago in Lima was a complete shame!!! Simply THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW TO DO IT... THEY HAD ANY IDEA OF IT... Anyway, yesterday was the flag welcome celebration at Santiago..

    You can downloafd the full program of the closing ceremony on Lima 2019 website. SPOILER ALERT! The handover of Santiago 2023 will be like this: - It starts with projections on the stage, along the Chilean anthem showing differents Chilean landscapes. (along the lyrics of the anthem) - Santiago map is projected on the floor, and then a Volcano explodes and dancers make their performances at urban styles leading by Power Peralta pop-dance duo. - Lights come down and on the stage starts to sing Francisca Valenzuela, a very popular Chilean pop singer. - All the staff of the handover reunites in a tradiitional Santiago square saying thank you to Lima and welcoming to Santiago 2023.

    In relation to the cauldron: I full understand that current times do not allow to spend large amounts of money and environmental resources I a big and (many times) useless cauldron. Let’s remember it’s just a symbol of the games, not the core of them, and still hosts are in debt on this point. What about about having a great cauldron inside the stadium just for both ceremonies and a little one in a public space? (as Rio did) Anyway, doing this is still a waste of money and resources… so, how can hosts put up with his during the next editions? … Maybe something innovative, cheap, clean and entertaining, but not a bad joke and even a lack of respect as Napoli did with that ridiculous fairground cauldron… Lima continues the tendencies of “solar cauldron” as Rio’s cauldrons (2007 and 2016) but I don’t take it as a copy of them, since it perfectly follows the Inca esthetics of the full ceremony … Nevertheless, it was too small and, because of it, the ceremony was lack of that “C major” to get the perfection in emotions… Anyway, Lima 2019 was crowned as the best opening Ceremony for a Pan Am Games ever.

    My comment about the Pan Am Opening Ceremony: - For me, the best ceremony so far in this year. (The Opening of the AFCON 2019 was pretty cool, too) It is very hard another one to surpasses it, so, I think we have seen already the best ceremony of this year 2019. And not only of this year, Lima took back all that glamour and dazzling spirit of an Opening Ceremony which was so down in the dump the latest months (getting the minimum point at Universiade in Napoli, one of the worst ceremonies ever in the latest months along Cocha) The ceremony was simply amazing: coordination were precise, the timing of the segments were perfect for all of them: not so long, not so short so you never got bored, fast, colorful, moving… it was the best demonstration of how to create an good live TV show . Even so much better that what I saw in Gold Coast last year, when, at that time, I thought it was the best demonstration of how to make an excellent show with a non-big budget… But Lima 2019 was a master on it. I don’t know if you agree, but Balich and Lima organizers used the time so much better than how they used it even in the Olympic ceremony in Rio. And now I realized that Rio could have done something a lot better with their time available… As Lima did: no seconds wasted…. ANY OF THEM! (a strong contrast with Rio’s) It was a perfect travel to their culture and folk, till the point you get moved by them. So innovative was the “pixels esthetics” of the full ceremony (the ground cover gave us an idea of it) which transformed all the ceremony in a “virtual journey” through Peru… JUST PERFECT!!!! It’s a hard task that Santiago 2023 has to face: to top the best Opening Ceremony for a Pan Am Games ever! Lima not only gave us that, but a true lesson, a guideline of how to use the resources available in the best way possible, not using technology as the unique background, but the culture and its people. From now on, ceremonies of regional sports events, has a lot to follow of it…

    Personally I don´t like it (yet) But it follows the new tendencies that only repesent the name of the city or years or both, which started in London 2012

    They talk about general information about the Opening Ceremony. Nothing we don't know so far: Liis Fonsi as the star guest (probably singing "Despacito"), The enterprise which produces the ceremonies: Balich Worldwide and they mention the previous ceremonies it has produced, since Salt Lake 2002 to Sochi 2014, they make a little criticism of the long and sometimes tedious of this kind of ceremonies and mention that "those enterprises are still in debt with the rhythm of those shows".... Nothing new...

    I totally low my expectations for ceremonies in Lima, sadly... I really thought that they could have their really strong point on them, but it won't... Anyway, Lima follows the worldwide tendency of doing low cost ceremonies and create a show totally prepared for TV audiences... some of them could have a great result, as it happened in Gold Coast in 2018... Even the 2018 Olympics and Paralympics had low budgets and simple ceremonies... I think, from now on, we can only expect breathtaking ceremonies at Chinese style for countries which just need to do a big show of them.. such comunist or dictatorships countries, as we could see in Ashgabat or Baku... And we could might have one a new one in Minsk and Beijing in 2022. For the next Pan Ams in Chile, the Organizing Committee had recently said that the total budget for the games would be almost the half of the one used at this point in Lima... so... you should not expect great ceremonies either... Rio 2016 demostrated that with a low budget you can do something spectacular... a great show for TV, but totally far from the wow effect we had between 2008 and 2015 ... the new tendencies for ceremonies, the Brazilian "gambiara" has reached all over the world: to do something great from almost nothing....
