For me was, the opening ceremony of Barcelona 1992 olympic games, by far

fallowed by the a close tie between Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004, with a little advantage of Sydney, but its a close call.

Athens 2004 was the best by far.

Followed by daylight, I loved Barcelona 1992 as well.

World Cup's dont generally have great opening ceremonies.

Barcelona '92 set the benchmark for the opening ceremonies of many great events especially the Olympics. The lighting of the Olympic Cauldron fir the Barcelona games is certainly the most daring and creative of all!

I could even see similar elements in Atlanta 96 that mimics the 92 opening Anyway I think Sydney2000 is slightly better than Athens but that is a very close call

Worth mentioning too are Seoul '88 I too think that the Chinese are gonna put up a very good show as it did for the Asiad '94 (Asian Games).

And I certainly think that no other sporting events or whatever come close to the extravagance of the Olympics!

I had the Sydney and Atlanta opening and closing ceremonies on VHS Anyone knew where could I download the opening ceremonies of the other games? I would certainly like to see Barcelona '92 again

Athens 2004 and Barcelona 1992 were the ceremonies that put new standarts without doubt. The Barcelona''s with the lighting of the cauldron and the Athens with the new view of the theatrical space-the water was true water after all and not any material who can be seem like water(plus the connection with the ancient Olympia).

Come on, Sydney s Olympics Ceremony was a bit silly,like a circus. Shrimp on bycicles are funny for a tv children show, no doubt ,but I dont see what they have to do with the olympic spirit . Athens was simple (but not poor,it was the most expensive ceremony)and ellegant
