We have exactly one month to go.... And little, almost nothing we know aabout the ceremonies.. what tells us that they have known to keep the secret perfectly.

Four years ago, for London ceremonies,we already knew some key parts: the countryside beggining, the Industrial revolution section, the participations of James Bond and Mr. Bean and the NHS tribute... Now we know... nothing!!!!!

So far, the #KeepTheSurprise has been too successful!!!!

Yeah. Only general ideas and concepts. Nothing more.

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

(Anchor)And the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics at the Maracanã? It is in the final stretch, lots of trials, a lot of expectation and secrecy. Total mystery.

(Reporter)It was born to be a temple of football and has again attracted the eyes of the world because it is getting dressed for an unforgettable party. Since the Maracanã was closed for the Olympics, it became a fortress. One of the biggest challenges of the Organizer Committee is to hide what is being prepared in there to enchant the world. On 5 August, the football leaves the stage and the Brazilian culture enters the field. What is beyond that door is a great mystery.

(Abel Gomes) We are here with a scenography of over 10,000 square meters. A scenography that is all changing.

(Reporter) To keep the secret, even the airspace of Maracanã is restricted. This is the closest our lenses can get. If the Beijing Opening Ceremony in 2008 impressed by costliness and London in 2012 by technology, the Brazilian party bet in another way.

(Abel Gomes) It is a more analog show, so to speak. I think, it touches the heart in a deeper way. The concept is to show a beautiful, modern and elegant Brazil.

(Third Man) It has no stereotype. It is something Brazilians will be proud of.

(Reporter)As about 5,000 volunteers chosen in auditions and professional artists rehearse, laborers work at a frenetic pace. In the headquarters, where everything is created, professionals of twenty nationalities, 90% of Brazilians, take care of every detail.

(Third Man) We have costumes being made out of Brazil, costumes being made right here at Maracanã, and in Samba Schools. So, we have a little of everything.

(Reporter)Into a month, the world will rediscover Brazil in this huge theater named Maracanã.

/\/\ Thanks for that. But what he says is nothing new. All the previous producers and directors all said the same thing -- secrecy, getting to crunch time, the preps, thousands of people involved -- one way or another. It's all part of putting on a big show.

You are welcome. Yeah. Nothing new, nothing relevant. Just to let people know what was said.

Winds are changing. One can feel it on Rio streets.

Do you mean that anticipation and excitement is building up? That's great news if it is. This should be the time you Brazilians should be getting ready for the party of your lives! :)

F#### WRIGHT BROTHERS!!!!!!!!

SANTOS DUMONT IS THE KING OF AIRPLANE!!!


Lets remenber...

Why would there be a tribute to Santos Dumont? Never even heard of the guy...and what does "flying" have to do with the Olympic Games? :blink: I mean if you want "flying," then maybe go back to "hot-air" balloons and the Montgolfieri brothers. But not even the French have used such an irrelevant idea for (their) Olympic ceremonies.

Psssst ...it's going to be the rainforest, Amazon, Brazilian flora and fauna that will feature mostly in the OC.

Santos Dumont is the inventor of the airplane. He was the first man to fly.


Thats why the first airport of Rio de Janeiro is called Santos Dumont.

And its dont have conection with the olympic rings, this is just a parallel topic

Now you can ask this to the directors of the opening ceremony. :lol::lol::lol:

Exactly. Excitement and anticipation. People have started realizing the games are close. You can feel it. :)

I thought you had been impeached too. :D :D :D Glad you are here again. The same does not apply to Mme. Rousseff, though. :angry:

Ah, você já acostumou a só responder na defensiva nesse fórum de merda? AHAHAHHAHAHA

Muito normal, só tem trouxa aqui e você deve ter virado um deles. Só gente burra, babaca, egocentrica que acha que a sua opnião vale mais que tudo.

Voltei aqui porque há pouco mais de um ano comentei que seria muito interessante ver Santos Dumont na cerimonia, e esse babaca viado do baron-pierreIV (que se acha o "mestre das cerimonias") ficou me zuando incansavelmente. Agora ele pode enfiar o 14 bis no rabo dele. HAHAHHSSHSHASD

Graças a deus fui pra outros fóruns onde tem gente civilidazada, ou maioria pelo menos.

;)
