London 2012 Olympics: Opening Ceremony


The Olympic Games Opening Ceremony:

• The London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony is titled ‘Isles of Wonder’, inspired by Shakespeare’s play The Tempest
• The worldwide broadcast of the Ceremony will commence at 21:00 on 27 July 2012, with the pre-show starting at 20:12.
• The Ceremony is predicted to be viewed live by a worldwide TV audience of over a billion people.
• The Ceremony will open with the ringing of the largest harmonically-tuned bell in the world, produced by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, measuring two metres tall by three metres wide and weighing 23 tonnes.
• There is 15,000 square metres of staging – equivalent to 12 Olympic-sized swimming pools
• A flying system that can lift 25 tonnes – the same as five elephants
• 12,956 props, over 100 times more than a West End musical
• A million watt PA system using double the amount of speakers than on the main stage at Glastonbury
• Services and products provided by 93 different supplier companies
• 10,000 adult volunteer performers
• Volunteer Performers from the NHS for a special sequence that ceelbrates Britain’s National Health Service
• 900 children aged 7-9 years and 11-13 years chosen from schools in the six host boroughs engaged in the official London 2012 Get Set education programme
• 70 sheep
• 12 horses
• 10 chickens

For all four Ceremonies there will be:

• 20,000 volunteer cast members, with UK-wide auditionees from 18-90 years old, including people who watched the London 1948 Games live
• 23,000 costumes and a total of 12 hours of music
• A combined TV audience predicted to be over four billion people
• 2,000 staff, crew and suppliers

The opening scene would be called also "Green and Pleasant" and that the aim of the ceremony is to create "a picture of ourselves as a nation".

The ceremony presented pastoral scene, which include 70 sheep, 12 horses, 10 chickens, three sheep dogs, real grass and a plough. There are also clouds with fake rain just in case the night is clear and a game of cricket.

At one end of the rolling British countryside is a Glastonbury Tor with a large oak tree on top and a 'mosh pit' underneath. At the other end is another pit of people, dubbed the 'Posh pit', to represent the final night of the Proms.

The Opening Ceremony is likely to be watched by one billion people and will enlist the help of more than 10,000 volunteers to help to create this action, which is inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest.
