How will the opening ceremony begin?
The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into a typical English countryside.
Just over a month before the London 2012 Games, preparations are underway for the opening ceremony on July 27th. Danny Boyle, artistic director of the event, publicly thanked thousands of volunteers who have been working day and night to ensure a successful event. Boyle has revealed, in a presentation to the British media, the first scene of the ceremony titled "Green and Pleasant". The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into a typical English countryside, with hills, meadows, rivers and typical farm animals.
