Since 2012, the UEFA and Circo have worked together to spectacular effect. The 12-minute opening ceremony of the Euro 2016 Final Draw was no exception. The UEFA asked us to create a show that would elevate and honour both European football and France. Kicking things off at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, 25 cancan dancers from the famed Lido cabaret made heads turn. Live performances and multimedia projections included an appearance by David Guetta and an original score performed by the breathtaking M’aile. Aerial footage reflecting the theme, SHINING WITH THE BEST OF FRANCE (IMPRÉGNÉ DU MEILLEUR DE LA FRANCE), enchanted 20 million viewers and football fans alike with a moonlit journey over the City of Light’s most romantic sites.
