GOTTHARD BASE TUNNEL CEREMONY/ VOLKER HESSE 2016






This posting will be to showcase the opening ceremony of the Gotthard Base Tunnel rail/ train route going through the Swiss Alps, which is impressive by itself with the 155mph train ... and the longest deepest tunnel, a 35 miles long underground tunnel over a mile deep beneath the surface, and the time it took to construct this. I did not know a thing about this tunnel or this performance, so Thanx to Infidel753 (blogger) who had a link to this on his website/ link round- up. But the other impressive thing was this extravagant theatrical presentation as the opening ceremony of this tunnel completion, which really caught my eye, and credit here to the 600 performers and the director who orchestrated this, German theatre producer Volker Hesse, this was just a well put together piece, I loved the background of mountains on the outdoor part, and how the tunnel setting and outdoors made the stage, the visuals, choreography, music, the costumes, Swiss culture, lighting and everything else, so I had to have this in this journal's music/ arts honour roll society ... great job! Below some newsread from The Daily Mail, then about an hour of performance below ... anywayz ... Enjoy!
