The Olympic opening ceremony, which included 10,000 dancing nurses, mime artists and the performance of every Shakespeare play, has been shortened in length. Lord Coe explained; "The problem was that several performers were also required for the closing ceremony and there was no way they could be in both. There was also a very slight chance that some of the audience might get a little bored towards the end of the 21 day performance."
