baron-pierreIV Posted January 11, 2012 Author Report Share Posted January 11, 2012 (edited) Was there any part of the Albertville ceremonies that was NOT bizarre??? I remember watching it on RV with my mother when I was just 9 1/2... the Costumes were weird, the choreography mad no sense, the music sounded like some sort of nightmarish Phillip Glass composition... I am willing to declare the Albertville ceremonies and the most bizarre of my lifetime... that clip you posted is not even the most unusual... The ceremony seems so ill-concieved especially when compared to the Lillehammer ceremony from just 2 years later which was the epitome of winter serenity, tranquility, peace, and wholesomeness and Albertville 2 years earlier looked and sounded like Cirque du Soliel's idea of what hell would be like... Albertville shall forever stand as an example of what NOT to do for a Winter opening ceremony..... On TV, not RV... No, but seeing bits and pieces NEVER seen previously makes it an even MORE surreal experience. You mean there was more? I think I know why. I believe this part (the women on the spinning discs) was cut from the U.S. telecast. CBS picked up from the recreations of the luge, the skiers, etc. It's really like some brain-damaged choreographer took over or . . .the French were in effect telling Samaranch (after he manipulated Barcelona's victory over Paris)...F&CK YOU!!
