Today is the fourth day OF the Chinese New Year, which is also the START OF SPRING in the 24 solar terms, and the long-awaited opening ceremony OF the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games will be held at 8 PM tonight.The so-called “a year’s plan starts with spring”, so tonight’s opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics is a highlight of the “spring” element, and the opening ceremony of the lighting ceremony is also a hundred years of Olympic history of a major innovation.Zhang Yimou, chief director of the opening ceremony, said the aim was to be “simple and exciting”, and that the ceremony would be shortened to 100 minutes, unlike the four-hour opening ceremony at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, without the use of “crowd tactics”.In addition, tonight’s opening ceremony and what else exciting, let’s take a look!There will be a 30-minute warm-up session before the official start of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, according to media reports.Director Zhang Yimou said in an interview with China Central Television last month that the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games will have no host and a more popular focus, unlike previous shows that invited hosts and celebrities to perform together.During the full rehearsal of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games on January 22, performers ranging from 5 to 70 years old performed the warm-up part of the square dance, expressing the expectations of ordinary Chinese people for the Winter Olympic Games.For the warm-up of square dancing, Zhang yimou made it clear from the beginning that he did not seek professional performers, but instead planned to find ordinary people from all over the country.”Due to the epidemic, the performers were mainly from Beijing and Hebei province, and they were not all ‘old ladies’. Instead, they were children, students from primary and secondary schools, and the elderly. Ordinary people of different ages showed off their talents on this international stage.The opening ceremony is the fourth day of the Lunar New Year. I also hope these ordinary people can show the world the atmosphere of our New Year.””China is a big country in square dancing. You can see in any city that people dance and sing when they are happy, so I think it’s very good.”Zhang yimou said.Compared with the opening ceremony in Beijing in 2008, which lasted about four hours and involved more than 15,000 participants, the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Committee has been adjusted in terms of length and structure in consideration of factors such as frugality, cold weather and epidemic prevention and control.Therefore, the opening ceremony is expected to last no more than 100 minutes, with “simple, safe and wonderful” as the creation principle.Zhang Yimou, who directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, will be the chief director of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic And Paralympic Games.He said the opening ceremony will no longer use “crowd tactics” and the number of performers will probably be less than 3,000.In addition in addition to zhang yimou, the opening ceremony of the members are sometimes “double the people”, including CAI guoqiang, ShaXiaoLan, Chen participated in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games opening ceremony of the creation, again in the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing games are respectively responsible for the visual art design, lighting design and art design, the characteristics of the senior members but also manifests the combination bring together.In terms of artistic expression, Zhang admits that the biggest challenge is to be both simple and wonderful.”We no longer set a framework for large-scale cultural performances, but rather integrate cultural performances and ritual processes, rather than separate them from each other.”But simple is not the same as simple.He said that it would show the modern art style of ethereal, aesthetic and simple, and convey the romantic sense of crystal clear ice and snow, another aesthetic concept.Invented the lighting ceremony for the Olympic BaiNianShi or into the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, li ning “prince of gymnastics” fly ignition has become a classic in the history of Olympic Games, this time, zhang said: “the ignition mode, and the way of cauldron, is our one of the most daring design and change, in one hundred has not been seen in Olympic history.”On August 8, 2008, li Ning, the last torchbearer, flew around the stadium during the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, preparing to light the cauldron.To save the surprise, he only revealed: “In order to reflect the concept of low-carbon and environmental protection, we have made a boldest design and reform in the way of lighting the fire and even the setting of the torch platform.Because it was subversive, and I was very nervous.We are grateful to have the support of the Winter Olympic Committee and the IOC.This method is usually unexpected, I hope you enjoy.”The opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing coincides with the start of spring today, so this important element will also be featured in the opening ceremony programs.Zhang said the start of Spring is a very good omen, so “make sure to use it in the opening ceremony, there is always spring, there is a positive and optimistic spirit, really like the slogan of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games – together toward the future.”In addition to the start of Spring elements, the opening ceremony is also full of science and technology, like the whole Beijing Winter Olympics, through the integration of scientific and technological innovation, low-carbon environmental protection, sports and health concepts, the use of artificial intelligence, machine vision, 5G and cloud scientific and technological achievements, to achieve “fewer people but not empty, empty and romantic”.Facing the huge space of the Bird’s Nest, the creative team will use creativity and technology to achieve a full visual effect, and integrate the artistic performance with the ceremony. The five-ring display, the entrance of athletes, the display of doves of peace, and the final lighting ceremony are endowed with unique art forms.Fireworks explode over the Bird’s Nest during a rehearsal for the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, Capital of China, Jan 30, 2022.At the same time, the Bird’s Nest has undergone a comprehensive intelligent upgrade. The ground screen can capture the actors’ moving track in real time, allowing actors and snowflakes to accurately interact with each other. Snowflakes can go wherever people go.Compared with the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the biggest difference of the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games is that the narration Angle is changed from “I” to “we”.Zhang yimou believed that 2008 was the first year to present China to the world, so he used large-scale artistic performances to show China’s 5,000-year civilization.”To show our history, our traditions, the path we have traveled, start with 29 ‘Big Footprints’.””It’s different now.I think everything about China’s position in the world, our image as Chinese, and the rise of our national status is completely different.”From “I” to “we”, from “telling history” to “pointing to the future”, Zhang yimou said that behind this, of course, is the rise of national strength and status, and the confidence of the Chinese people.The creative team said that they hope to engage the public as much as possible and let ordinary people stand on the stage, including the hot show and all aspects of the performance, so there will be a lot of linkage with ordinary audiences at the opening ceremony.Original title: “Tonight!
