It was lovely to see the spectators cheer the torch lighter place the torch on the big snowflake sculpture. Lovely ending to a calm and happy ceremony.

Well, that was really a short opening ceremony. ;) Not much more to say here, as I watched only the last 30 minutes of it.

True- not much of a cultural performance. I wonder if those will return in full force from 2024 onward?

I mean it was still generic and Chinese enough but it was a simple but good performance.

was calm..   except for Parson’ strange shouted speech.

i agree with words,  just not the bizarre delivery of them

Funny costume of Italia:lol:.

I actually loved their ponchos. Very stylish coming from a design student's perspective. Bravo, Armani

Ah, the lovely snowflakes song... 

I love it too. I saw an accordion version and it was beautiful to hear!

I agree. His delivery was weirdly intimidating.

Now I did not watch that propaganda show but just read that Parsons‘ speech was censored in China in parts (probably delayed broadcast by a few secs?).

If the IOC/IPC had any guts, they‘d send everyone packing now.

New low by Xina in their desperate attempt to deny reality.

Just couldn't muster the enthusiasm to watch this in full, partly due to current events and partly due to how underwhelming the Olympic Ceremony was, but largely knowing we'd get no pay off with the torch moment.   Did catch that though - as crap as the first time - even just lighting a slightly bigger torch within the snowflae would improve things.   Liked the fireworks Agitos afterwards though.

Q: Peace is not to be shouted.   

 

PEACE should be shouted from the roof tops with unbrided passion....there is nothing wrong with that.

 

You’re absolutely right.
