PENNSYLVANIA LYRIC OPERA THEATER
Bringing forty years of experience in the performing arts to the table as professional
opera singer, voice teacher and stage director, Garry Grice is the artistic director and
founder of Pennsylvania Lyric Opera Theater. He has sung over 50 leading operatic
tenor roles in such distinguished houses as New York City Opera, Milwaukeee Florentine,
The Bavarian State Opera among many others in the US, Canada and German speaking
During the 90's, Mr. Grice created Indiana Opera North, the company which launched the
careers of several singers, currently performing around the world. Upon relocating to
northeastern PA, he again began to lay the groundwork for a professional opera
company in the Poconos. He produced and directed three very successful professional
productions in conjunction with the Shawnee Playhouse, Cosi fan tutte, La Boheme and
The Marriage of Figaro.
Then, in 2006, he created a summer young artist program and created the name
Pennsylvania Lyric Opera Theater. This program produced Gilbert and Sullivan's
Gondoliers, Die Fledermaus and The Mikado. In August they remounted Die Fledermaus
in our new venue. This program is open to all undergraduate and graduate age singers
and has received rave reviews.
