The preparation of Copa America 2015 Opening Ceremony
Esteban Icardi the organizer of the grand show is too hopeful about his work:
“We have been giddy with excitement these last few days because time is hurrying along however we have a rather large team who are preparing a beautiful show. It will be magical and with lots of surprises”
According to him
“Our show has been planned so the cast will not stand on the National Stadium’s pitch so as to take better care of the grass for the Copa America matches. Therefore, one of the surprises is that all participating countries will fly from the audience to the stage,”
The ceremony will take place at 18:00 local time (22:00 GMT) just before the first match of the season between Chile and Ecuador in Santiago’s National Stadium.
The rhythm and dancing feet:
