Today is 14 days before the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

On the 20th, Zhang Yimou, the chief director of the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Winter Olympics, accepted an exclusive interview with a reporter from China Central Radio and Television, introducing the relevant situation of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.

  At present, the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics is undergoing final rehearsals and adjustments.

The creative work actually started two and a half years ago, and there have been many attempts.

  Compared with the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is relatively compact, and is expected to be no more than 100 minutes. The goal is to be "simple and exciting".

  About 3,000 actors participated in the theatrical performance at the opening ceremony.

Facing the large space of the Bird's Nest, the team will use creativity and technology to achieve a visually full effect, turn the performance into a part of the ceremony, and connect the front and back, so that the entire opening ceremony can be completed in one go.

  If some words were used to describe the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, it would be ethereal, romantic, modern, technological and so on.

  Compared with the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the biggest difference is that the storytelling angle has changed from "I" to "We".

The opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games focused more on letting more people know about traditional Chinese culture, while the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics was about the spirit and ideas shared by all mankind and a community with a shared future for mankind.

This reflects the cultural self-confidence, and we are going to the future together.
