i have some spoilers (minor)... First one: Usually the torch lighting ends the ceremony. However, there is a segment after it. This segment was described to me as one of the coolest things ever..

Apparently rehearsals for the opening ceremony begin today so, as ever, that calls for a spoiler thread. Spoilers in here, protect the general thread etc etc, you know how it works. Hope this is usefu

Apparently from reading this article: http://news.hankyung.com/pyeongchang2018/view?aid=2018012398391 The Opening Ceremony will feature five children as the main roles (a la Sydney 2000, Soc

The flame lighting ceremony at Stoke Mandeville Hospital here in the UK, which has become a tradition marking the start of the Paralympic torch relay, has been cancelled...because of snow.

No. Not so far. I guess after that Reuters incident. They are really keeping the Paralympic Ceremonies a secret. 

However, according to a search result on Google conducted by myself, the official Paralympics website states that the ceremonies "will be a thrilling fusion of Korean culture and the country's traditional musical styles".

Also, on the 2018 Cultural Olympiad website (https://www.pyeongchang2018.com/en/culture/paralympics-ceremony), it states that the Opening ceremony "will be 110 minutes long, with the theme ‘Passion Moves Us’. The Ceremony will showcase programmes and protocol elements, including cultural performances to welcome the Paralympians, the Parade of Athletes, the opening declaration and the lighting of the Paralympic cauldron." The Closing Ceremony "will kick off with the cultural event to celebrate and appreciate all the Paralympians who showed the passion and determination throughout the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. It will be followed by the Entry of Nations’ Flags, HWANG Yeon-dae Achievement awards, and the extinguishing of the Olympic flame. A spectacular finale will mark the end of the meaningful 10-day journey of the Paralympic Winter Games."

Also, it seems that NK and SK will march together again at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony just like the Olympics.

The flower prop could be a reference to the Mugunghwa (무궁화) which is the National Flower of South Korea
