“Variety” is too small a word to describe everything that’s happening in the smorgasbord of amazing visuals, music and acts on display at the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge – “America’s Ultimate Variety Show”.
This show has it all, from exotic animals to special effects to comedy routines to dancing and musical numbers – you couldn’t pigeon-hole this show even if you tried. It’s different from what you thought an Opry should be, and possibly from anything you’ve ever seen!
Smoky Mountain Opry has laser lights, pyrotechnics, video screens and even aerial acts – a world-class production even by the super standards of Pigeon Forge. One of the many reasons our customers gave the show a Silver Award for Best Music Show this year.
The Opry’s music covers a wide range of genres and styles. Motown, disco, country and Etta James mix tastefully with Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, Elvis and other legends. Songs from Hollywood and Broadway mingle with classic country, new country, and old gospel. The musical performers are outstanding – and some even perform in the air!
Everything is enjoyable and something is here with special meaning for each generation and taste, and it all works together. The cast sing and dance their hearts out, and change clothes to match what they wear to what they’re singing – an amazing effect, number after number. And they’re so athletic you think they’re going to fly off the stage – which they actually do, often, through the magic of wires.
Highlights of the Smoky Mountain Opry
- White lion and white tiger – danger and grace, thrill and suspense
- Spellbinding aerial ballet with scarves high above the stage (a nod to Cirque de Soleil)
- Hilariously funny comedy routines – audience in tears (you WILL laugh).
Bottom line, it’s an amazing show. And as everyone agrees, it’s the show you just can’t miss!
