Rio de Janeiro 2016 Ceremonies.


Recommended Posts

It begins. Can't wait to see how it turns out so we make ourselves an idea.

Anyone has the ticket seats plan? Are they going to make a stage at any part of the stands?

The dark blue are the cheapest tickets.

And it's exactly place where the seats are being removed.

Video from Globo. The grass has been fully removed now. Also they seem to be (finally) cleaning the Maracanazinho roof.

It's highly possible they will have to build a stage to make up for the smaller field, compared to the other ones in the past since the ceremonies are being held in a football stadium for the first time.

Despite they were regional games, the Pan Am ceremonies were truly spectacular... Indeed, they were the first time the Pan Am had an Olympic scale ceremony....

Anyway, in the Olympics he have seen more compacted spaces such as in Turin or Salt Lake ceremonies or in LA closing, even in Athens closing...

Even in compactes spaces, having good ideas you can see a pretty spectacular show!

Just remember: Torino stage that had a stage that even did not take the entire field, Athens closing which was a sort of wheat spiral and a long narrowed stage where everything happend just around it, Shangai Special Olympics opening, wchich was a sort of narrow cross over the field... and the show was amazing!, Beijing closing ceremony which had a central circular stage where the action was just concentrated over there, Salt Lake 2002 having a central rounded shape ice rink with two narrow entrances in every side... the show was one of the best in Winter Games history and LA cosing where the central stage concentrated all the action....

Space is not the topic, but the ideas themselves...

Well, SPACE is a consideration. You can have all the action on 5 x 5 stage...but if you have a 100,000 seat arena, it's still going to be a distant happening for 85,000 spectators. It's HOW you use the huge space that you have been given to work with. And the good Ceremonies producers will know how to fill that void and make it come alive. That's the issue -- not the small, concentrated stages that are put up. Plus, it has to be dynamic show that will transcend the smaller performing areas.

Two other good examples of smaller stages were: the Guadalajara 2011 show and last year's European Games OC in Baku.

But Nacholympic's right about the space aspect of Rio's opening. The Maracana stadium is a sub-80,000 capacity football stadium, not an athletics stadium, so in terms of spectator closeness to the centre spot it's going to be almost as intimate as Sochi's Fisht Stadium. But as you point out, it's still large enough that when filled with action it can look amazing.

This link confirms what we most of us knew that the opening ceremonies will encompass the history of Brazil. Apparently they will also try to deliver a pro-inmigration and multicultural message to the world (the asian/european inmigration to Brazil in the late 19th century I suposse) which they feel is needed at the current times with the rise of extreme-right movements.

I think this is only the estructure. But is hard to guess what this will be. And news about the rehershels? Do you think that we could have a open dress rehershel lixe in London?

No. They would NOT broadcast a dress rehearsal. Those are still 'secret' and NOT ready to be unveiled to the world. I mean people will come with all their cameras, but technically, it's NOT for open broadcasting. Rio 2016 will want the citizens' cooperation for that.

I don't think that's what luizfernandobr45 meant by "open dress rehershel lixe in London". But the answer is still really no, as the dress rehearsals in London were for Games volunteers and performers' families, which is not really "open".
