Beijing Olympic 2008 Opening Ceremony

9 08 2008

This is just me but I think Beijing Olmpic’s opening ceremony is by far the most elaborated opening ceremony I have ever seen. The ceremony is very lavish and visually attractive. The use of LED screen on the floor, fireworks, pyrotechnics are very extravaganza. The whole ceremony is like the storytelling of Chinese history in the making, harmoniously and beautifully orchestrated by Zhang Yimou (of “Raise the Red Lanterns”, “Hero”, and “House of the Flying Daggers” fame). His use of colors and other symbolism is lavishly constructed and it still has the trademark of Yimou even though this is the opening ceremony for Beijing Olympic.

This is one Olympic even that can’t be missed.
