The Rio Olympic Games' opening ceremony will take place at the famous Maracana Stadium in less than 12 hours, with executive producer Marco Balich saying that the curtain-raiser will show the world a wonderful Brazil, featuring Brazilian creativity.

The opening ceremony has three themes: The Garden, Diversity and Joy.

Some 21 million US dollars have been spent on the show's preparation, about half of London's expenditure four years ago.
