Yes, football ceremonies are always opened by opera singers since time immemorial because classical music is a part of every culture and universally accepted. Among the openers, we have Opera Stars Yusif Eivazov, Anna Netrebko, Albina Shagimuratova and Ildar Abdrazakov along with Pianist Denis Matsuev.
Along with the bigger names, there would be many other performers such as gymnasts and trampolinists. Also, around 500 dances have been chosen for this big event who would pay tribute to Russian life and living. The official song ‘Live it Up’ has Nicky Jam, Will Smith and Era Istrefi. The official song would also be performed before the first match.
The opening ceremony is being held in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. The officials have also promised a concert which would be held at the ‘Red Square’ right after the opening ceremony.
