(ANSA) – RIO DE JANEIRO, APRIL 21 – After two years of coronavirus pandemic in Brazil, last night the first Carnival parades took place in the Rio de Janeiro Sambodromo, in front of thousands of spectators.

The first samba school of the Serie Oro to perform, around 9 pm (2 am today in Italy), was Acima da Hora, with a show inspired by a popular railway line and the characters that cross it. Among the most applauded by the public is that of Uniao da Ilha do Governador, with an ‘enredo’ (plot) focused on the liberation of the slave Zacarias thanks to a religious miracle. The show particularly highlighted the devotion of Brazilians to the Virgin of Aparecida, the national patroness.

The most beleaguered VIP figure in the press was the former world champion and former Ballon d’Or Ronaldinho, who for the occasion opened the doors of his luxurious private ‘camarote’ (grandstand), from where he enjoyed a view privileged on the avenue of 800 meters, stage of the parades.

The shows of the most famous carnival in the world had been postponed from February to April due to the aggravation of the cases of Covid-19 following the appearance of the Omicron variant. (HANDLE).
