As I walked through the Rio, after finally working out where to park without having to walk three miles back to my hotel elevators, I stumbled on the rehearsals for the all new Show in the Sky.
The quality the video is terrible, so I’ve kept it short.
The show was pulled a couple of months ago, revamped and recently re-opened. You can see the full show here.
The version I saw was just the same, except without the floats in the sky (except for the child-scarer, which was hanging motionless in the air), the costumes, stage lighting or much of an audience.
Then at the end, the "Rio advanced warning system" alarm went off.
At first it looked like the siren was part of the show, and I might have thought it was if it wasn’t for the fact the same thing went off in my room at 5am! I’ve never been so glad to be jet-lagged.
About half an hour later it sounded again to say that the first one had been a false alarm.
