While the fans know it’s going to be a big celebration that includes the pageantry of the Parade of Athletes, little else has been shared. According to ABC news on Thursday, the fireworks for the show were seen by many people who were outside of the rehearsals of the stadium.

Apparently there is a historical performance featuring 800 performers slated too. Daniel Ezralow told ABC that he was planning a historical look of the country for the world to see. Add that to the music from famous Russian violinist Yuri Bashmet who expected to be seen and it sounds pretty delightful.

Another highlight involves the children. A choir of 1,000 children are expected to be singing. People who have watched the rehearsals have hinted the choir is part of a segment with a include a floating cathedral domes and glowing magical horses.

While there are other rumors about the 2014 Olympics Opening Ceremony, it has not been easy for fans to find out exactly what to expect. If the intense fireworks display from the Fisht Olympic Stadium has anything to suggest, the Olympics Opening Ceremony is going to be epic.
