China’s National Olympic Committees (CNOC) has announced it will be the host of the opening ceremony for the 2020 Summer Games in Tianjian, capital of Shaanxi province, on June 8, 2019.
The event is a tribute to the Chinese people who fought against the Japanese invasion and occupation during World War II, the first Olympics to be held in the country since the end of the Second World War.
In the video, the Chinese acrobats perform the classic ballet “Majestic,” the traditional Chinese dance of the imperial court, the national anthem and the national flag.
The video was released by the CNOC on Tuesday, which is also the official name of the Olympic committee.
The committee said in a statement that the new ceremony is a “great honor” and a “historic event.”
The event will be held at the China National Exhibition and Convention Center in Tianshan, Shaanhua province, where the Games will be staged from June 8 to June 12.
China hosted the 2016 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, with the opening of the Games taking place on Aug. 6.
The opening ceremony was held at a military parade in Beijing.
