Who cares if performers are world famous or not? As long as they work for the show, in the moment, that's what matters most. These ceremonies are about cities showing the world the face THEY want

Omg guys, u need to sotp! It's boring how you're jugding the hole cerimony just by pictures. LETS RIO SHINE without yours negative comments. I'm loving everything, it's so colorful, so alive. They are

Yeah, they've gotta be my all time favourite placard bearers.

Don't suppose you can train capybaras?

i would hope something less complicated more simple. like a Room Master and Flag Carrier (Mestre-sala and Porta-Bandeira) in the colors of the flag

This seems to me a very logical choice. And make the Parade of Nations a complete Carnaval

The Maracana may have several disadvantages:


- Field with no running track, which gives less room to use the OC.

- Inputs and outputs of smaller than normal fields.

- Chairs in very close to the ground places.


But an advantage could be exploited.


I took a look at the schedule of events at the Maracana, and they will have 10 days to get the stadium a soccer match. What is very good, can you work hard in the opening, with the field having more time for repairs.


In the closing ceremony, there is also more space will be three days, can you build something more interesting there.

Yeah, and certain (very touchy) countries were not pleased by it. I too would not like to be marching behind an animal. Besides, those are living creatures you have to be very careful about and you are putting them in a very stressful situation for at least 2 hours. Not kind or considerate. Something simple will do...not something ridiculous like Albertville, Athens, Torino or London. Those were so silly.

You don't need a running track. The Winter OC's don't use a track. For a summer one, Melbourne 2006 is on my Top 6 Opening Ceremonies

...and Scottguy I have to ask about the elephant in the room, did you really have a false identity in the past here? I don't think it matters much so perhaps you will be honest or perhaps you will not answer openly. Anywho......I think you should say something.......and welcome back.

What an odd-shaped stage. I guess they're not going to be using the many tunnels under the field if they had to build a new stage over it.

Why aren't we getting a 24-hour feed on what's going on here?? :angry:

I wonder what the structure of the football pitch is in terms of layers of materials beneath the grass? Maybe they need to build a rigid false floor over it whenever it's used by large numbers of people, to maintain its quality for playing, even though they've removed the actual turf.

There is no grass under the stage. Remember this:

But they will plant the grass imidiatelly after the cermony.

"The grass had to be removed because it would not take the sun below the base that serves as a stage for rehearsals of the opening. A 24-hour operation will reset the field in the stadium after opening ceremony for the football games. The grass used is the same type used in the World Cup 2014 and is already growing on a farm in Saquarema. Responsible lawn, Greenleaf has partnered with Spanish company that takes care of the Camp Nou (FC Barcelona stadium)."

And then, will they rip it apart for the Closing? Or perhaps build another stage for Closing (Like London had another stage layout for the Closing)? ...

From what I remember of the pics of the tunnels when they were being laid out, they were probably 8'-10' wide, so I'm sure the beams over those were sturdy enough to support turf PLUS the machinery necessary to layout/remove the turf. So I hope quite strong.
