Daphne Cornez, the artistic director, described the event, via
: “The Opening Ceremony is a tribute to Brazil and its treasures: nature, people, football. The sense of excitement here is amazing and everyone is very motivated. It doesn’t matter whether they’re feeling tired or hot sometimes or if they have to go through routines again and again: they just keep on smiling. It’s amazing.”
The opening ceremony was designed to highlight the diversity in Brazil, from dancing the samba to amazing capoeira choreography.
NPR’s Russell Lewis reported from Sao Paolo today:
“Blowing horns, donning team jerseys and wearing wildly colorful hats, fans from many of the 32 countries playing in the World Cup were everywhere,” he says. “Security was tight. Police were milling around as protective barriers were installed along the stadium’s roads. Military and police helicopters circled overhead keeping an eye on the final preparations leading up to the opener as Brazil takes on Croatia.”
