Signed in New York during her years with the Metropolitan Opera
Signature: "Marcella Sembrich/New York March, 1907", 3½x2 card. Considered the greatest coloratura soprano of her day, Polish-born Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935), born Praxede Marcelline Kochanska, made her operatic debut in Athens in 1877. The coloratura soprano appeared in Dresden and London before making her debut at the initial season of the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1883. Although Sembrich retired from the Met in 1909, she continued to tour in concert until 1917. A lifelong Polish patriot, Sembrich was active in fundraising for relief of her homeland during World War I. Sembrich, whose voice was captured on numerous recordings, later became a noted vocal teacher at the Curtis Institute and Julliard School. Also a talented pianist and violinist, Sembrich had been taught and mentored by Wilhelm Stengel, whom she married in 1877. Fine condition.
