    Section 16, Row K

    I have been to the Opry at The Ryman before and these seats are not bad. Of course there are better, but depending on the show this area is usually one of the cheaper options available. You will lose some of the artists (a drummer or pianist) if they are toward the back of the stage, but the singers and performers are typically at the front of the stage and you can see them great from section 16. This section is also close to the concessions so it is quick and easy to grab a drink as they change over the stage between artists.

    • Balcony Sides


      Sections 9-10 and 15-16 are considered side balcony sections. These have more of an angle toward the stage than the center sections. Sections 10 and 15 are closer to the center and are the more preferable sections in this location. However, although sections 9 and 16 are all the way on the side, they still provide clearer views and a better experience than the back rows on the main floor. One of the reasons for this is that the performers for the Opry or any other performance are typically at the front of the stage which is in clear view. There is also a large projection streaming the show that is great to help follow small details happening on stage. From these seats you can look around the auditorium and take in its beauty. The seats are pew style. If you are looking for leg room, Row A of the balcony is the only place you will find it at the Ryman Auditorium. Some of the cheapest seats for an Opry show will be in the back rows of the balcony. Typically, these are a great deal when compared to other seats and the experience they provide.
