Rio de Janeiro 2016 Ceremonies.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to steer clear of this thread until 6 August, but occasionally it may be worth making an exception.

Could this be the inspiration for the set design?

...cranberry-fest is in October. It's interesting how you take everything so personally, you even say "our ceremony", like the Rio Olympics are not a part of something bigger or more important....you probably are right....and that's precisely the problem with Brazil and the Olympics.

Please don't correspond with me again.

Dubstep in the opening ceremony??? This is already a failed ceremony in my book!

But so far it looks more like a Pan American OC than an Olympic one.

BTW, does anyone know of a site that will air it live online without any commercial interruptions? We can expect the US version to have some so I want to watch it online in between those breaks so that I don't miss anything.

Please go live your life. The problem here is you judging a nation (and even worse, people here) based on your personnal traumas, as you said before. Go live your life.

Does anyone know of a link to watch the dress rehearsal now ?

On Sunday several spectators were live streaming the first dress rehearsal through the periscope app

Tonight's Dress Rehearsal is closed for the public :(  

Really?  The final dress rehearsal is the night they want to have the most crowds so it mimics actual OC and thus, serves as a back-up tape for the actual OC.  Strange; but CC-Rio 2016 seems to be doing it backwards.  So it already taped the July 31st Dress as the back-up??

I hope this OC didn't revolve around another kid dreaming or getting conscious. From Sydney to Sochi, definitely, I got fed up of that 2000's paraphernalia. On the other hand, I'm also excited to go back to the basics and let the people make how much special they can turn the ceremony themselves, including us as viewers.
