By the time the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Opening Ceremony commences, a total of seven sets of Summer Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies will have occurred since that memorable night on 15 September 2000 at Stadium Australia when Sydney welcomed the world with a stunning, mega-breathtaking Olympic Opening Ceremony for the ages. That translates to, between 2004 and 2028, a total of 28 Summer Olympics or Paralympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies since Sydney 2000. How will Brisbane and Queensland welcome the world in 2032? Importantly, how will Ceremonies, gimmicks, theatrical and creative presentation have evolved in those preceding 32 years since Sydney 2000, the last time Australia hosted? Will they be downsized or upsized ? Will keeping the shows wholly contained in a stadium be old “old hat”, or will there be a return to blockbuster stadium shows or a combo? What or who would you like to see more of, less of or who should be the director of Ceremonies? Should there be different Directors for each Ceremony?

We couldn't have an OC without the live chat! I'm surprised no-one started the thread a week ago. Anyway, here it is ready for all of us to share our thoughts, joys and cringes as they happen (unless you're on an NBC delayed broadcast). And hopefully some of the lucky members there will be able to post from the stadium itself. Just about 24 hours to go! Looking forward to some Brazilian partying!
