Anand - Carlsen Opening Ceremony

This fortnight's Video Friday falls one day after the ceremony opening the Anand - Carlsen World Championship match and one day before the first game of the match. I watched the ceremony yesterday and am pleased to present it on this blog. Much of it is in English and it is a wonderful celebration of chess.
