The grand opening of the 2022 Olympics consists of different parts - an artistic program, a parade of participants in the games, the raising of the Olympic banner, lighting a fire...

The right to host the opening ceremony of the Games was granted to Chinese director Zhang Yimou, who was nominated for an Oscar three times. Imou was previously in charge of the ceremony at the 2008 Summer Olympics and the show is remembered by many.

This time, only 3,000 actors will be involved in the opening, the audience is waiting for original special effects.
