Mary is a dynamic performer and voice teacher originally from the rural American southwest, praised for their “striking” performances (OperaWire) and “elegant interpretation” (BroadwayWorld) in opera, musicals, concerts, and plays across the US and Europe, including at Carnegie Hall in New York, the Teatro Argentina and Auditorium Conciliazione in Rome, and the Alte Münze in Berlin, and performances with City Lyric Opera, Opera Fayetteville, Rome Chamber Music Festival, Moab Music Festival, Ars Musica, and the Brooklyn Telemann Chamber Society. Roles include Hänsel in Hänsel und Gretel, The Queen of Hearts in the US premiere of The Garden of Alice, Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus, and Emperor Nero in L’incoronazione di Poppea. Not limited to classical music, they have been featured in Broadway Premieres and Wall-to-Wall Stephen Schwartz with Symphony Space, the Lifetime Achievement Gala for Hal Prince, and performed as everything from a Hot Box Dancer in Guys and Dolls to Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macduff in Macbeth.
They have maintained a private voice studio since 2014. Their students span genres from pop to classical to rock, from hobbyists to working professionals, and have released albums, headlined regional musicals, and begun teaching studios of their own. www.mary-rice.com
