The Lyric Theatre Three Years Later
Rochester Lyric Opera Announces Purchase of Theatre
By Mary Walrath of The Wedge
When Sue Cotroneo purchased the worship building of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, located at 440 East Ave. three years ago, she was simply seeking a home for the prior transient Rochester Lyric Opera.
The Lyric Theatre will serve as a venue for opera, the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and will be available for numerous other arts institutions and performing organizations.
