Closing Ceremonies Successful?

The Opening and Closing ceremonies are a time that countries come together and celebrate.  It is a time where the whole world keeps their eyes on the television to see what exciting things will happen. The opening ceremonies were great and since some malfunctions took place (the non-opening ring) Sochi wanted to make the closing ceremonies memorable and fully functional.

It started with Russia poking fun at no other than their own opening ceremony. When dancers of all ages took to the floor to start off the ceremony they formed many shapes, the most memorable being the Olympic rings. To make everyone laugh a group of dancers stayed closed while the others opened just like the malfunction that happened at the opening games.

After that, the countries all came in as one and watched the rest of the ceremony which included, a giant piano concert, a giant bear crying, and the spectacular firework display at the end. I personally was creeped out by the bear because imagine that coming up to you and gesturing you to hang out with him. I just don’t trust giant animals. Back to the games, the piano concert consisted of 62 pianists that played “Piano Concert Number 2” and incorporated ballerinas. The fireworks throughout and at the end of the ceremony were my favorite part. They were breathtaking to watch on the television I could only imagine what it was like to see them in person.

All in all I think the closing ceremony was extremely successful. I enjoyed watching it and although the scary bear crying during the extinguishing of the flame I think they did a very good job.
