Any sources for this? Because I think that using a mainstream music star to perform in a Olympic ceremonies is unnecessary and useless..

Bjork performed at the Athens opening and even with the dress malfunction put on a delightfully wacko show. I doubt Katy would sing her new single though - 'Rise' - as it is the NBC theme. Maybe 'Roar'? 'Fireworks'?

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

I can see faces from the box mountain now. Segment dedicated to volunteers/famous Brazilian people/multiracial society?

Nope. Famous drug cheats - Marion Jones, Ben Johnson, Armstrong, many Russian faces, etc. LOL!!

If I am not mistaken, those are the Field Marshals who will shepherd the Nations as they march in, and guide them to their spots on the floor. It says "ARV" so for the Arriving Nations. Looks they are forming the central "avenue" thru which the Nations will march (and where the flag-bearers may ultimately line up). I think the slabs are there just for the rehearsal and to mark some spots. Some readjusting to do in the absence of a certain large country.

 Actually it means "Árvore", or Tree in english

My fear to see these pictures .. It is the lack of a big structure. I hope it's not a simple ceremony is an opening of Olympics and not of the FIFA World Cup .

 

Oh my goodness... Olympics and World Cup are two different things. The FIFA opening ceremony wasn't even created by Brazilians. The Olympics in Rio have got super talented people on board, read their qualifications in the SRCOM/Cerimonias Cariocas website. The opening will be great in its own way. It does not have to have any large structure like previous Olympics because this is a different one, with a different perspective, and in whatever way they choose to present their show, it will be full of professionalism from years of work and financial investment.

It is 3 hours and a half show , where two hours are convicted of a busy parade of athletes and speeches.
1:30 a.m. left over that I hope to be grandiose .
 
mass demonstrations did not impress me , as well as projections.
 
I hope it's great , of course , this is complicated when there were few resources for the ceremony.
 
I will spend 4 hours in front of the TV, I hope to see a great show.

These white and round structures. In one of then Brazilian and the Olympic flag will be hoisted. In the other, the flags of the other nations.

 

Those will be the "Protocol" stages where the singing of the National Anthem, the speeches and the oaths will take place.

Sorry to disappoint you, brasilolimpico, but there will be mass choreography numbers.  That's why the Olympics are held in huge cities of at least 2.5 million for the Summers, because it draws on the large population.  It's not like they are using a town of 2,000.  They are purposely held in large cities so there is a huge pool of talent AND the numbers to draw upon for these huge massive numbers.  Ceremonies with 6 people on the floor, do not work.  Even in Sochi, the drug-induced Russians had to import hundreds of performers from Moscow and Krasnodar to realize those magnificent numbers.  That's why these are the Olympics.  Nothing else in scale compares to them -- and you use a cast of thousands.  That's just Olympic s.o.p.
