Mickey Mouse stars in a "big vaudeville show" in Silo Center's Opry House. Sure, Mickey has to play almost all the parts himself (from concert pianist to belly dancer!), some of the music is literally produced by yowling cats, and the piano and piano stool somehow come alive and rebel against their player, but all in all, it's good fun for everyone and the crowd is pleased!
This story was the second, following The Barn Dance (1928), to seek to establish Mickey Mouse status-quo in his little country town, complete with the introduction of recurring townsfolk like the anthropomorphic goat sheriff later identified as Bill Goat.
Mickey would once again get in a fight with the Living Piano in The Jazz Fool (1929).
Behind the scenes
This cartoon was released in March of 1929. It is remembered as having been the most expensive and sophisticated Walt Disney cartoon to date upon its release, costing $2,500 more than Steamboat Willie had.
The program of the vaudeville show includes (bad) performances of several real-world pieces, including Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor (Op. 2/3), Georges Bizet's Carmen, and Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2. 
The cartoon is often referred to as the debut of Kat Nipp, including by INDUCKS. However, this is inaccurate; the Pipe-Smoking Cat identified by these sources as Kat's first role actually bears little to no resemblance to Kat Nipp as he later appeared, and is, to boot, featured as a friend of Mickey Mouse's.
The Opry House is also one of the unfortunate lot of early Disney cartoons to have contained mild offensive stereotypes; in this case, one of Mickey's acts, though mercifully the shortest, sees him putting on a derby and “squashing” his snout to perform a quick dance as a caricature of a Hasidic Jew.
