On one of the boxes of the right side can you see some human faces??

Yup, I reckon so, possibly representing a street art mural on the side of a building:

My biggest fear is that this ceremony is too simple. That lacks surprising elements that can put the opening in history. The pattern of London 2012 is the ideal , we do not need to Beijing in 2008 but if we invest in a very simple ceremony , it will appear that we went back to the 70s .

I have a feeling you need not worry too much about that. I'm more worried that it will be a ceremony which is so unpredictable that it needs lots of explanation by the TV commentators (though if the BBC offers a "no commentary" option, I'll be using that anyway for the live viewing).

Probably the Brazilians will not understand the ceremony.
I envy you. You have the BBC to watch the ceremony and can use the 'no comment', I have in Brazil GLOBO TV (okay, it's 2nd largest station in the world), I have to bear in Brazilian primetime, Galvao Bueno (which is games narrator of the national team, and known to talk ... talk ... talk ... talk ... and exalt Brazil).
If these screens are not LED, I have conviction of party failure. It is enough to bet on little technology, the Maracana have small entrances, a roof that does not support a cauldron, two presidents of Brazil in the box and etc.
You will be confused.
God save the queen? No, we need God to save Brazil and OC!

Rio 2016 indicates positions for Temer and Rousseff in the box

size_810_16_9_michel-temer-e-dilma-rouss

The Rio 2016 organizers seem to have found a solution to the position of Temer and Rousseff at the opening.
The idea is that the President is placed in the second row of the box, it would be next to the living former presidents (Sarney, Collor, Cardoso and Lula da Silva). But the interim president Michel Temer would occupy the third floor along with other heads of state.
However according to the O Globo, the assessment is that some former presidents will not appear as Sarney and Lula da Silva.

Lol, as if brazilians will give two damns about it. I'm sure they will boo them all either way. :P let's face it.

Yes, both will be booed .
Although Temer will be the one to be highlighted , as will be announced your arrival and will appear on the big screen to the statement.
-
Foreign delegations also have boo history in Brazil . In 2007 , Venezuela was booed ... before the anti-PT climate in Brazil and how Rousseff's administration is related to the exterior friends in Ecuador , Venezuela , Cuba and Bolivia I would not be surprised if these countries were booed off the parade of athletes.

It's LED. The boxes are covered by some protection. Look that the banner from Filmmaster uses the same style of the covering of those boxes.

The cauldron doesn't need to be on Maracanã's roof. When I was thinking about a cauldron on Maracanã I thought in puting the cauldron on those ramps. They are close to the roof.

I have some more informations about the OC. But I don't know if I tell you or keep as a secret :D

A cauldron these ramps would be amazing.
Even more if we could get someone inside would leave the stadium , and go on the roof to get there.
Would be amazing!

That might be amazing for the TV audience, but for the people in the stadium it would be utterly tedious. If the eventual position of the cauldron is on the waterfront, then the lighting at the stadium is most likely to take place somewhere it can be fully appreciated by the stadium audience and the athletes.

Since put those big screens in the stands do not think the public at the priority.
Besides leaving several chairs with blind spot , the perception of what is displayed will be impaired , it will be good for those who see the other side of the stadium and who see in the center but who are in very close there is not going to get a good picture side .
The cauldron in Sochi was also outside the stadium. I think the firing being done on the ramp would be amazing , but did not think possible.
The idea of ​​having a cauldron in the center would enable people to see him easily if I had one on the outside of the area maracana people could also easily see and it would generate protests against the money spent on two cauldrons .
Still Pelé walking on the roof of the Maracana would be amazing and perhaps the apotheosis of the ceremony.

In fact even a very good ceremony can become a failure for those who see home if:


Do not have a proper soundtrack every time.

If the cameras do not catch the best angle each time.


I hope everyone is aware of it .


The olympic rings London 2012 were awesome for those watching on TV but in the stadium were not so impressive.

Majority of the cinematography in London sucked.

...those ring coming together overhead were probably great in person in London, no?

Only if you were underneath them or if you were in the cast, who could appreciate it from the floor. But I am sure it was not as impressive from the upper reaches of the stadium. I mean you get the view commensurate to what your ticket was.

TBH, I think Viva Essa Energia was a much better and more Brazillian theme song for any sport event in Brazil.

The Olympic one for Rio doesn't sound very Brazillian. I was expecting some samba-style rhythms and beats in it.

I agree that Viva Essa Energia was a very good song, but this one is good too!

And the rhythm sounds very Brazilian to me. Kind of Carioca funk.

The London rings inevitably looked less ring-like the higher you sat, but that's where the "rain of fire" came in. It gave a vertical dimension to the spectacle and as a bonus, because many of the sparks continued glowing for half a second or so after they hit the ground, people in the higher seats saw the Olympic rings on the stage, formed purely from sparks (i.e. like Beijing, but real).

That song is not very catchy, inspirational or moving. I mean a couple middle age guys doing a bad rap behind a stereotypical Neapolitan selection of child performers.........the whole thing falls very flat and meaningless.

I guess these type of required manufactured songs are never that great to be honest.
