As the Olympic torch approaches its destination, the iconic National Theatre comes to life with flames, turning it into a massive riverside hanging garden of conflagration, to celebrate the start of one of London’s most memorable occasions.

Cut and pasted from the Whatsonstage Website:National Theatre lights up for Olympics
The stalwart concrete buildings of the National Theatre were illuminated last night by the flames of thousands of torches to mark the opening of the Olympics. Entitled The Fire Garden, the display by the humbly named World Famous Pyrotechnic Company turned up the heat as part of the National Theatre Inside Out festival. It will return between 9.30pm and 11.30 tonight (25 July) and tomorrow (July 26).Raks's Twitter Review
