Around 500 dancers, gymnasts and trampolinists will be performing in an opening extravaganza that will pay homage to all
things Russian. The ceremony will close with a firework display.
Who Will Be Performing?
FIFA is yet to announce the performers of 2018 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony but we don’t expect anything less than
legendary. Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull were headlines acts at the 2014 opening ceremony in Brazil, but there is still no
official confirmation of who will top the bill this time around.
All we know is that opera singer Placido Domingo – who famously soundtracked Italia ’90 as one of the Three Tenors
alongside Luciano Pavarotti and José Carreras – will be performing. Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Florez will join him.
“It is interesting that football events are usually opened by opera stars because classical music is a universal code
understood by residents of every country,” said the tournament organisers.
Pianist Denis Matsuev, global opera stars Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eivazov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Aida Garifullina and Albina
Shagimuratova are among the Russian stars on the show.
