Opening Ceremonies Theatre: Seoul, 1988

The Olympic Ceremonies are always interesting to watch, at the very least. At its best, as in the clip above, the ceremonies can be a representation of the host country’s culture and traditions. The Seoul Opening Ceremonies look downright quaint compared to the ceremonies of Athens and Torino. They are during the day, without any elaborate sets, lighting or special effects. However, the sight of the Olympic rings being formed by skydivers (at 3:40) is awe-inspiring. Looking forward to Beijing, I am expecting nothing less than a ridiculous spectacle, though not anything Spielberg-esque.
