The opening show
Picture a unique performance in which water, earth, air and
fire come together in a flamboyant, moving and lively creation. Imagine a stage
on which the elements dance together before your very eyes, in the most
unexpected shapes and forms.
and morning dew, soft breezes and hurricanes, volcanic explosions and northern
lights will turn the stage into a miniature universe. Fantastic special effects,
giant projections, walls of water and natural scenery will pay tribute to each
element's vital and destructive forces.
The human hand is evident everywhere in our world. A hand which
cultivates the land, makes tools and tames rivers. A hand which also spreads
desolation and terror, wreaks havoc in ecosystems and destroys people and
A hand stretching out to others, bringing hope, consolation
and protection. A solid and supporting hand, symbolising the power of
humanity. Well-known artists from all five continents will bring this immense
fresco alive, putting their talents, songs, dances and performances together in
a show full of emotions ranging from utter dispair to soaring hope. Manu
Dibango, Vanessa Mae, Laura Pausini, Le Cirque du Soleil, Ethiopia Circus, Riverdance, Dick Bakker and Up with People will perform well-known pieces from
their repertoire, or special compositions created for the occasion as an
integral part of the scenario.
Join them in becoming symbols of the Power of Humanity,
our strength and hope for the new millennium.
