Blind Summit cast and directed 50 puppeteers (15 professionals and 35 volunteers) to bring to life giant puppets of Voldemort (90 feet high!), Captain Hook, Cruella De Ville and the Queen of Hearts in the 'Second on the Right' section of Danny Boyle's thrillingly original Opening Ceremony for London 2012.

"Danny Boyle has made the biggest, maddest, weirdest, most heartfelt and lovable dream sequence in British cinema history"
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, on the Opening Ceremony
