The scenario is already co-ordinated with the International Olympic committee. “ truth for remained time the opening scenario still can change. There are also other scenarios, but the given variant - the basic “ - marks a source.

Three crews will arrive from three parties and will fly on the road shined with the sun, on the second scene. Apparently, it is the original citation from Gogol “ Dead souls “.

in the summer of 2011 Organizing committee “ Sochi 2014 “ declared competition on the best scenario of closing ceremonies and Olympic Games opening. Winners are named, but their ideas have decided to refuse.
“ Scenarios were not maintained simply by critics. All - taki without a certain experience to create the high-grade scenario it is simply impossible “ - Ilya Bachurin, the former general director of Agency on carrying out of opening ceremonies and the closing of Games created by organising committee specially for carrying out of opening and closing of the Olympic and Paralimpijsky games speaks.
the symbols of Russia which has entered into the scenario of opening of Games, experts approve.
“ through Russian fairy tales it is possible to transfer and original culture of the country and to show national suits so it is quite good idea, - the president of a group of companies of CD Land Yury Tsejtlin considers. - As to Peter the Great, it is cult enough figure, well-known in the West, most likely, therefore have chosen it “.
Thus the interlocutor of the edition underlines that the question of an embodiment of the scenario at all should not be overshadowed.
“ Olympic Games opening in London has subdued spectators just that the unique scenario has been well executed and from the technical point of view, therefore to say that it is more important - for example, special effects or, on the contrary, the maintenance, it is impossible, - Tsejtlin marks. - I Think that special effects at us will be not worse, than at other countries. But it yet the keystone to success as useless dramatic art technical navoroty will not rescue. Set of the good scenario and special effects will allow us not to be worse than British, and can, and it is better “.
But precisely to tell that opening ceremony will be such while it is impossible. For its remained time can seriously correct.
“ it is possible to alter all and three days prior to action, - producer Arcady Gasilovsky speaks. - However, the Olympic scales hardly will allow so to make, but possibility for maneuver all the same remains “.
In organising committee “ Sochi - 2014 “ To make comments on the scenario of opening of the Olympic games have refused.
“ data on opening ceremony and closings of Games are not public. Organizers traditionally do not open a secret up to the beginning of the ceremony “ - have declared in organising committee.
the information on expenses for opening of Games also is not disclosed. This year Great Britain has spent 42 million dollars for Olympic Games opening, ceremony in Vancouver cost two years ago 40 million dollars.
