Welcome to the opening ceremony of the 2022 Winter Olympics, a totally normal Olympics in totally normal times.

Thanks for joining us. I’m Daniel Victor, one of a large team of New York Times journalists who will watch the ceremony with you. We’ll be following not just the sports story lines, but every bit of what makes opening ceremonies and the Olympics at large so fascinating: the people, the geopolitics, the fashion, the memes and the bombastic spectacle we’re about to witness.

Inside Beijing’s National Stadium, typing with very cold fingers, will be me, Chris Buckley, Andrew Keh, Juliet Macur, Steven Lee Myers and Amy Qin. Several much-warmer reporters will be joining us in the United States, analyzing the events from every angle.
