The opening ceremony will be directed by Zhang Yimou, who also directed the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.The Opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games left a deep impression on people. Now, after 14 years, the Olympic flame has come to Beijing again, and the Olympic flag will once again fly over the Bird’s Nest Stadium. Let’s take a look at eight highlights of the Opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games.Zhang Yimou has made history by becoming the first director of both the Opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics and the Opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.In 2014, Zhang yimou was the chief director of Beijing’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics. This time, he was appointed as the chief director of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics.”I am very lucky to be appointed as the chief director again. I am very excited. I feel that I can contribute to the country again and do such challenging work again.But apart from the excitement, I feel a lot of responsibility and pressure.”In 2008, Zhang yimou was the chief director of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, and he was praised for bringing top-notch artistic and visual enjoyment to the world in nearly four hours.It is interesting to see what Zhang Yimou will bring to the audiences around the world during the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.Unlike the breathtaking opening ceremony in Beijing in 2008, which ran nearly four hours, the Winter Olympics will be shorter.This does not mean that the splendor of the Beijing Winter Olympics will be reduced. It is due to the epidemic, outdoor winter and other factors, so the length and length of the Games will be reduced.Zhang said this winter Olympics is different from the 2008 Summer Olympics, when there was a lot of space to talk about 5,000 years and show the ancient and traditional civilization of the Chinese nation, and the whole world saw such wonderful things.This time, the opening ceremony will be shorter due to cold weather, the fact that the audience will be outside, and the requirement of quarantine.The opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games is full of science and technology. Although the number of performances is less, and there is no longer a large-scale artistic performance, the sense of science and technology will make the scene and performance more possibilities.Zhang Yimou, chief director of the film, said: “The number of actors has been greatly reduced, and the content of science and technology has made it full, empty and romantic.So, it’s about performing with technology and new ideas.”The opening ceremony of “Start of Spring” is the first of the 24 traditional Chinese solar terms.Director Zhang Yimou has made it clear that the “start of Spring” will be fully reflected in the opening ceremony, he said: “The start of spring on this day is a very good omen.So, be sure to use it for the opening ceremony.A thousand colors always spring, there is a positive and optimistic spirit, really like the theme slogan of the Beijing Winter Olympics, “Together for the future” global cooperation and reconstruction under the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world has been affected, the Olympic Games and winter Olympics are no exception.The severe epidemic situation has brought great challenges and tests to the Olympic family.At the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, promoting global cooperation and reconstruction in the face of the epidemic is an important concept conveyed by the opening ceremony.Wang Ning, head of the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, said: “We have the responsibility to show the beauty of nature, humanity and sport, to show the power of people to overcome the epidemic and to inspire people with passion.”During the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the artistic performance was criticized by many, but the only thing that got everyone’s thumbs up was the background music.The background music of the athletes’ entrance is BGM of many classic games, such as The Brave Fight against the Dragon, Final Fantasy, Legend series, Monster Hunter, Kingdom Hearts, wheel of Time and Space, etc. This arrangement has been well received by the outside world.So what music will be used in the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics?It is reported that the opening ceremony will have 18 pieces of music, after a tense recording, has been completed, the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics music use, is also worth looking forward to.Zhang said the lighting ceremony was different from the one in the past 100 years, and he wanted to be the first to do it, to show his cultural confidence in this aspect.An important concept of ignition for the Winter Olympics is “low-carbon environmental protection”, which has also been fully affirmed by the International Olympic Committee.So the way the Winter Olympics are lit will overturn many people’s perceptions.Who will light the cauldron?As well as how it is lit, who lights the cauldron is of equal concern.First of all, we need to say that Wu Dajing and other strength and popularity of both athletes, because of the need to prepare for the game, so the basic can be sure that will not appear in the ignition of the selection list.Hopes are high that one or more of the athletes who have made great achievements for China in the Winter Olympics, such as Dayang Yang, Wang Meng, Zhou Yang, Ye Qiaobo, Han Xiaopeng, Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, will light the cauldron.Among them, Ye Qiaobo won two silver MEDALS in the 1992 Winter Olympic Games, which was of epoch-making significance and made a breakthrough for China to achieve zero MEDALS in winter Olympic Games.Dayang Yang became China’s first Winter Olympic champion when she won the women’s 500-meter short track speed skating gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics.Wang Meng is the Olympic queen of China, winning three gold MEDALS at the 2010 Vancouver Games.Shen xue and Zhao Hongbo became the first Chinese pair to win a gold medal in figure skating at the Winter Olympics.
