Le célèbre défilé du Carnaval de Rio a embrasé la ville.

 

Le célèbre défilé des meilleures écoles de samba de Rio de Janeiro, au Brésil, a commencé dimanche soir. La première école à entrer en scène, Paraíso do Tuiuti, a commencé à défiler à 22h00 locales au sambodrome

Elle a rendu hommage au mouvement tropicaliste, qui a révolutionné la chanson brésilienne à la fin des années 1960, avec des monstres sacrés comme Gilberto Gil et Caetano Veloso défiant le moralisme de la dictature militaire.

 

Fidèle à l'esprit de ce mouvement libertaire, l'école a présenté un défilé exubérant, plein de couleurs vives, avec des toucans géants ornant le premier char, devancé par un groupe de guerriers indiens évoluant selon une chorégraphie traditionnelle.

Près de 70'000 privilégiés s'étaient massés dans la "passerelle de la Samba", de son vrai nom avenue Marques de Sapucai, et des millions de téléspectateurs de tout le Brésil étaient rivés sur le petit écran.

Plus grand spectacle de la terre

"Nous nous sentons victorieux rien que pour le fait d'être ici, malgré la crise. Nous nous sommes énormément battus pour être ici. C'est le moment d'oublier tous les problèmes", s'est enthousiasmée Beatriz Gloria Andrere, femme de 62 ans, qui s'apprêtait à défiler dans une énorme robe rose.

Auto-intitulé "plus grand spectacle de la terre", ce spectacle multicolore est avant tout une compétition. Qualité des costumes et des chars, harmonie du défilé, choix du thème, paroles de la chanson: chaque détail est passé au crible selon des critères très stricts par un jury intraitable.

 

Comme au football, il y a plusieurs divisions: ceux qui aspirent à intégrer l'élite ont ouvert le bal vendredi et samedi, mais la crème de la crème, les douze écoles du "grupo especial (groupe spécial), défilent dimanche et lundi.

Chaque défilé dure 75 minutes, contre 82 l'an dernier, avec pas moins de 3000 personnes qui déambulent avec des costumes extravagants, souvent ornés de plumes, strass et paillettes.

Le célèbre défilé a été terni dimanche soir par un accident. Le dernier char de la première école de samba a blessé six personnes, en venant percuter une des tribunes du sambodrome. Deux d'entre eux sont dans un état grave, a indiqué la police.
