Almost everything is ready for the Olympic Games in Beijing. A group of artists led by renowned director Zhang Yimou are finishing rehearsals for the opening ceremony. He says the show will be grand, though not as long as the 2008 Summer Olympics in the Chinese capital.

“The scale and duration of the show has been reduced. There will be no thematic artistic performance, and the number of actors will be significantly reduced, - said the director of the opening and closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Beijing Zhang Yimou. - Nevertheless, the use of high technologies will make the performance full, harmonious and even romantic. In a word, the show will be made on the basis of advanced technologies and new conceptual ideas.”

The Winter Olympic Games in Beijing will be held from 4 to 20 February. The Paralympic Games will take place a month later, from 4 to 13 March.
