Sochi dazzled the world on February 7 with an opening ceremony featuring a feast of Russian music and a cast of thousands including ballet stars, acrobats, cosmonauts -- and even an ex-heavyweight boxer. The theme of the event was Dreams of Russia, with a young girl named Lyubov (Love) guiding spectators at the packed Fisht stadium on the Black Sea coast through thousands of years of Russian history. With the mists clearing after a spectacular opening sequence in the roofed venue, President Vladimir Putin looked on while a choir from the Sretensky Monastery sang the Russian national anthem as the flag was raised by a group of Russian cosmonauts.
