Carnival's very own glitter-loaded starter gun, the Baile Oficial da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro (Official Opening Ball), traditionally falls on the Thursday before the big show, held in a famous corner of the city of a thousand famous corners. This year, the Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM) plays host, a suitably grand venue set to receive the Rei Momo (literally the King of Carnival) who will pass the key to the city over to officially open proceedings. Last year's winners of the Grupo Especial, Unidos da Tijuca, will be present and correct to supply the music along with Neguinho da Beija-Flor and Moyseis Marques, while the great and the good of Rio society limber up for the week ahead.
