In what’s a dramatic and unique departure from razzle-dazzle opening ceremonies of the past, London’s Olympic Stadium on July 27th will be transformed into a slice of rural British countryside.

The announcement was made this morning by the ceremony’s artistic director Danny Boyle, who said the $42M event will paint “a picture of ourselves as a nation.”

“On entry to the Olympic Stadium in East London the audience will see a scene that represents a traditional and idyllic view of the British countryside,” the organizers said in a statement. “The set will be complete with meadows, fields and rivers, and featuring families taking picnics, sport being played on the village green and farmers tilling the soil whilst real farmyard animals graze.”

Animals include 30 sheep, 12 horses, three cows, two goats and 10 chickens, plus three sheepdogs. Over 1 billion people are expected to tune in. Check out the full release here.
