All the sparkling descriptive words to describe a truly delightful Broadway show can be bestowed to the Smoky Mountain Opry. To understand the impact, encouragement, and commitment to the craft of showmanship, you have to experience this ultimate musical variety show. Witness the most artistic cast of singers, dancers, comedians, aerialists, and musicians in the Smoky Mountain Opry. Every act is woven with truly inspiring and creative work, honouring and celebrating significant contribution to theatre.
Success in their field also depends on spectacular collaborators, a team of amazing talented animals. The star of the show is Tsimba âvaati, the majestic rare white lion, only 300 in existence today. He is partnered with White Tigers, Royal Bengal Tigers, Serval Cats, Monkeys and proud Arabian Horses. These wonderful animals have been trained with a lot of care and affection to help create art for the group. If they could speak, they would address a large audience and teach them about unity across the nation and across time.
Add to this the state of the art lights, lasers, and giant video screens for special effects and high tech visuals. Explosions, flashes, smoke, flames, fireworks or other pyrotechnic driven effects add theatrical special effects, and proximate pyrotechnics. Proximate refers to the pyrotechnic device's location relative to an audience. In the majority of jurisdictions, special training and licensing must be obtained from local authorities to legally prepare and use proximate pyrotechnics.
The music covers a broad range of musical genres and styles. It ranges from Sinatra, to Disco, country hits, Motown, and classics like Etta James. And George Jones, a performer who is missed dearly. Thereâs old country and new country folk, gospel, mingled with Hollywood movies for special effects, and a whole Broadway medley section. Imagine hearing the Beatles in this medley. The combination of grace and power emitting is electrifying, not only from the artists but the proud animals as well.
Come here for Christmas and revel in spectacular music, the areaâs largest living nativity, flying sugar plum fairies, Santa and his dancing reindeer. The theatre lights sparkling Christmas snow to liven any spirit, mystical fog, and electric lights for added charm. Christmas in the Smokies is a special time of year, so come celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with Jolly olâ Saint Nick, and most importantly, the celebration of the birth of Christ with the areaâs largest living nativity.

Smoky Mountain Opry Reviews & Ratings
We attended the Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry show on Christmas Eve. We are big fans of Chris Blue and were looking forward to seeing him perform in the show. The tickets were not cheap, but it was worth it to see Chris perform. As we were heading towards the door to be seated, we were stopped to take a picture with Santa (at a cost of course). We said we were not interested. The woman who was trying to sell the pictures seemed mad that we didn’t want to buy a picture and told us she would have to see ALL our tickets. Ok, so was that supposed to make me feel bad? When you go in, the usher looks at your tickets anyways to seat you. This was the first of several other times I saw how pushy this show was with selling throughout the show. They said if anyone wanted to do a meet and greet with Chris Blue, all you had to do was purchase his CD for $20. It was good for the whole group, so being fans of Chris, we bought the CD. The next item was these light up candles. $10 each or 2 for $15. They said a portion of the sales would go to various causes. After the show, we waited in line with our CD to meet Chris. I was trying to take a few pics of him with my phone before we got up there. The same woman that had an attitude because we would not buy the Santa photo told us that we could not take cell phone pics unless we bought a pic for $10 with Chris Blue which they would take. GREEDY! Another thing I disliked was some inappropriate "humor” that was used at different parts of the show, mainly with the old man. First, I was under the impression this was a FAMILY show and on top of that a CHRISTMAS show. There were many children in attendance. Can you not clean up the show for a Christmas show at least? I would NOT recommend this show to anyone. Chris Blue was the best part of the show and did fantastic. There were a few other performers that we enjoyed as well. But a big part of it was just cheesy and not funny at all. Disappointed.
The show was fantastic. We visited Christmas Eve 2018. My kids absolutely loved it. The rating is due to some of the dialogue from Slim Chance (not sure if it was scripted or not) that had sexual inuendos and was not appropriate for my children. The jokes were off color and I was cringing as my children were hearing this. Not what you’d expect for this show. Aside from that, the people were extremely talented and it was a blast!
My Wife and I agreed that this is the best Christmas show that we have seen to date. A great mix of music, comedy, set and costume changes. Center Row C seats 1 & 2 are perfect with lots of leg room, they are center but offset so no other seats are in front to block your view of the stage...
Great combination of christmas classics and comedy. Storyline of santa claus and the true reason of the season.
What an awesome show!! I must admit, this show exceeded my expectations. They had it all, from celebration to pure laughter, to somber. The singing, dancing, music, crew; everyone was exceptional throughout the entire evening. Even the concessions and gift shop personnel were super pleasant! What a worthwhile, fun-filled evening!
