MILAN, Oct. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In front of 50,000 spectators, 4,100 athletes from 41 countries and 650 million viewers across America, the Opening Ceremony of the Pan American Games, the largest-ever sporting event in the country’s and continent’s history, was a magnificent 3-hours showcase of Chile, its land and its people.
The show’s creator, the acclaimed Olympic Producer Balich Wonder Studio, has developed a creativity forged together with the best talents from Chile.
The Opening Ceremony 2023 was conceived around the concept of ‘The land and its people’, the relationship that every human being has with the place of their origin, and the evolution towards something better.
Marco Balich, Chairman of Balich Wonder Studio said: “We are honored to support the Committee to celebrate this fantastic country. We felt part of a unique team with Lotus, and we did our best to create a compelling narrative to make the country shine in the eyes of the world. Our creativity always starts with shared emotions to create identity and give back to the country a strong legacy. After the success of last year’s FIFA World Cup Ceremony in Qatar, Balich Wonder Studio proudly reached another milestone, the production of the second Ceremony of the Pan American Games in a row after Lima 2019.”
