Yeah.

This made me remind some statements I read some time ago here on GB, that said Maracanã's new coverage was too fragile, it cuoldn´t support any weight, things like that. Well, as I read at the time of the reform, it was said that the coverage has the capacity to support up to 45 tons. Please, correct me if I´m mistaken.

Almost this, I remember that they need to put 120 tons, but they only can put 81 tons on the roof. But they found a solution. I read this on a article from 2014.

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

I watched quite a lot of the videos and pictures you guys thankfully posted here, and I must say, that I'm looking very much forward to the opening ceremony. What I have seen so far is surprisingly im

There was an article that said they were to builiding towers outside the stadium to strengthen the roof.

Look that there is some steel cables on the tower.

As you see, the stage is not elevated as I said before. Now they're putting all the line arrays (more than 10 I read) and all the lights.

@Mauricio. I know the one in Atlanta. I had checked out that one tunnel myself.

If you will research other pictures of the renovation work at Maracana, WITHOUT THE HEAVY EQUIPMENT on the field, I think you will find one where the mouth of one tunnel was shown. (Or at least, I would've put one there if I were in charge; because it was done after Beijing and Rio had already been picked as the 2016 host.)

Well, Baron, I goona feel amazingly surprised if they have hidden the existance of one or more tunnels from public. Well, that would be great if they had tunnels there because they would have more possibilities to create and perform their ideas, their concepts, like the ine Geometrization bla bla bla...

Well, tunnels or not, if they raised the level of the floor that means there might as well be props which will rise from the ground like in London. Though I guess they won't be too large or heavy.

If they have built a raised floor, it's much much more subtle than London's, with probably only a very limited area capable of hiding large contraptions (particularly given the need for human access in case things go a bit Vancouver).

Newspaper 'O Globo': 60 heads of state confirm presence at the opening.


The matter of the newspaper deals with the impeachment, but devotes a short note to the opening ceremony.


The newspaper says that 60 heads of state confirm presence at the ceremony is expected 95 heads of state come to Brazil, the expectation is still Barack Obama will come.

I see no rise in the Maracana floor. Probably they did something in the style of London or Vancouver. - These LED screens take up as much space in the stands , I hope they are used in incredible shape , because the point is not the most beautiful .

/\/\ It looks like a container shipyard. I think the flags of the nations will defnitely be projected on there!!

The "containers" do have blue curvy outlines on their front faces- except for the ones near the top which have structures like the facade of a skyscraper. That doesn't entirely rule out a rear-projection or LED-screen system though.

Oh yeah, projections from the front and from inside, too.

It seems that many seats will the vision impaired because of the large screens .
I sincerely hope that 2016 does not sell those seats because not worth R $ 1

Tricky!

In order to maintain a smidgen of surprise, the stack of blue boxes is not indicated on the Opening Ceremony ticketing plan, which makes it look as if you can pay R$200 for a seat which would in reality be inside a blue box (all seats around that end are R$200, which would be about $62 US or £47 GB).

It's so unfair if they are selling tickets behind the LED screens .
Imagine you prepare for a trip to Rio and discover that it has a huge wall in front that prevents him from seeing the entire stage or much of it .
Even in London 2012, the great tree had no potential to screw up so significantly to the spectators vision that was behind her .
