Opening Ceremony

 

· The Games begin in grand and royal style as London, the first city to host the Olympics three times, welcomes the world and Queen Elizabeth II officially opens the Games. The Opening Ceremony, directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) also features the Parade of Nations, as athletes from more than 200 countries march into the Olympic Stadium together in one of the most powerful symbolic events in the world. The pageantry culminates with the always highly anticipated lighting of the Olympic Cauldron.
