Was given 2 tickets as a gift last weekend. Had a great time! The singers were great, the dancers and the music was just really wonderful. Maybe a couple slow moments here and there but the rest made up for it. Loved the country music, enjoyed the orchestra. Kids were brought up on the stage at one point to meet... More

As always their Christmas show is very nice. We come back every year. Their non-Christmas shows are really good too. Very professional.

The Christmas Show at the Carolina Opry is a high energy show until the very end. "Let it Go" by Tangena Church is outstanding. So are many other numbers. Unfortunately, "He Lives" by Rita Gumm remains in the show. The energy of the show is zapped at that point to make some kind of message. I am Christian and do... More

We really enjoyed the Christmas show at the Opry. The singers were very talented and the design was wonderful. It was very enjoyable. Not much for the kids though as it is 90% singing and not a whole lot of other entertainment.

great acoustics and the Christmas show is not to be missed. Costumes and gowns are all beautiful and vivid. Choreograph of numbers was seamless and songs were done with feeling. Great for all ages

The Christmas special at the Carolina Opry is worth the price of admission just to watch & listen to Rocky Fretz at the piano. His playing "Gloria" is my favorite & when I finish typing this I'm going to you tube & listen to it. Sometime I hope to go listen to one of Rocky's concerts!!

It started out a little slow but ended with a bang. The group all seemed to love it. Would come again.

The talent of the Carolina Opry cast is remarkable! We really enjoy this show... and generally go once every Christmas season. We loved all of the cast, but I especially loved Tangena Church's rendition of "Let it Go" from "Frozen" and Colton Cason's vocals, as well as the "All That" cloggers. We got tickets in advance and were seated in... More
