GUANGZHOU, China – December 8, 2010: Spectacular and ground-breaking, the opening ceremony of the Asian Games in China was bound to invite comparisons with the Beijing Olympics, but organizers were determined that Guangzhou would be unique and creatively different from anything that had gone before.
