I honestly don't see what is wrong with a map in the shape of Russia. If Sydney or London did it people would see it as another fantastic gesture of inclusion, but when Russia simply designs a stage

The whole point of the ceremony is to see different cultures and how those cultures see themselves and their Games. The type of people who criticised Athens for that are probably the same people who s

It looks like a Montessori Convention more than a world-class competition venue.

^^ I think those pics which were posted in SSC are still kinda old. I remember an article was posted about Putin attending dress rehearsals of the Opening Ceremony already (although I doubt those are full ones) so I believe the stage should be more advanced than these pics.

Putin attended a dress run-thru in Moscow.

No. How could they do a dress run-thru in Moscow when they were only rehearsing the ice numbers in Sochi, at the nearby hockey rink? They gave RasPUTIN a rough run-thru w/o lighting, etc. when he was on-site in Sochi. I believe the only sections rehearsed in Moscow are the ones involving a lot of the ice stars and the opera performers who all live in Moscow and St. Pete. Their sections will be integrated into the main show in Sochi in a week or 2.

I stand corrected - although I was under the impression from a news report that Putin had somehow been closely involved with the goings on in Moscow.

Notice the pillars structures. I think those will be for the Imperial Russia segment, like they did in Kazan last year (russian waltz just can't miss the party since they're part of Russian culture)

So far the stage looks like a mix of Vancouver and London to me. I wonder if they will build a stage in one of the sides, since obviously they'll leave an open one to allow the big props to come in.

Is the first pic a real spoiler picture? Or is it from another event?

But, all of us know that Kazan was a "rehearsal" of Sochi, indeed!!! I don´t expect something so different. It was so cool!!!

I'm not so sure.

It certainly isn't the interior of the stadium as the overlay is not Olympic overlay (the evidence of sponsor logos), so maybe this is another Sochi countdown event?

And obviously all of those other photos are just stock promotional pics for the Lights group, not from their involvement in Sochi.
