There were many features in the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics in the year 2008. The centerpiece of the opening ceremony was the lighting of the grand Olympic torch.
The 2008 beijing olympic opening ceremony cost over $100 million. This is about $476,000 per minute and $8,000 per second. This is twice the cost of the 2004 Athens opening ceremony. All I can say is good luck in topping THAT London.
Opening Ceremony was August 8, 2008 (8/8/08).

Hi the piano player was Lang Lang and also Li Muzi
The 2008 Beijing Olympics had the opening ceremony on August, 8, 2008. 8-8-8, as you can guess, 8 is lucky number in the Chinese culture.
The opening ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games will start at 8 pm (UTC +8) on August 8th.
The 2008 Games in Beijing will have the opening ceremony on August 8 and the closing ceremony on August 24. There are no events scheduled on the day of the opening ceremony, however, qualification rounds in football are scheduled for the 6th and 7th. That would make 18 days with event competition at the 2008 Games.
