Brilliant choreography (the dancers, the wire climbers, the "human" skier figure)

Creative costuming (floor length gowns with bottoms that looks like the Alps), local specific parts (ferrari doing sonuts), great music, and the way they lit the flame - amazing and grand!

Luciano Pavorotti looked like he'd gotten a poor dye job or a bad toupe, but his voice rang true as always and he look thoroughly thrilled to be singing there.

Sometmes the opening ceremonies leave me cold, but tonight's were wonderful!
