Ending Ceremony: carnival ensemble and moderate nudity

Cordão da Bola Preta, Lenine and Roberta Sá are some of the attractions, while Tokyo promises technology and tradition

A great street carnival event takes hold of the Rio 2016 Games ending ceremony this Sunday (21) in Maracanã. One of the biggest ensembles in Brazil, Cordão da Bola Preta was summoned to the part, along with its godmother, actress Leandra Leal.

Carmem Miranda (1909-1955), who became famous for her carnival marching-tunes, will be payed tribute to by singer Roberta Sá. Lenine is another name which was summoned to close the two weeks of Olympic Games- he is going to sing a song in tribute to volunteers.

“The idea is to talk about art made by the people. And in the end, of course, there has to be carnival”, said the creative director and creator Rosa Magalhães. “Rio de Janeiro’s anthem is carnival marching-tune from the 1930’s. I don’t any city on the planet has something as crazy as a carnival marching-tune for an anthem. So it’s fair that this is the ending”.

Rosa is currently a carnival artist of São Clemente, and was responsible for the opening ceremony of the Rio 2007 Pan-American Games. An artist, she achieved five carnival awards working with Imperatriz. “There will be some nudity, yes. But it is moderate nudity.”

The soundtrack will be made by musical producer Alê Siqueira. “He managed to gather the best of Brazilian music. And when the soundtrack is good, it’s quite uplifting”, he said.

Landscaper Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) will be remembered at a huge garden of dancers, with many bromeliads and palm-trees. Lena Santana, one of the costume coordinators, has told that the garden colours will be “precise and closed”, while the carnival ones will be silver and shining.

“We tried to use the carnival materials, only much more elegant and fancy. The finishing is impressive, one will recognize the durability of it”, said Lena.
