Marcella Sembrich Opera Museum

Marcella Sembrich Opera Museum

The Museum is filled with memorabilia of an international operatic career spanning over 50 years, including paintings, sculptures, accolades, personal effects, music, and autographed photographs of Sembrich contemporaries such as Mahler, Rachmaninoff, Caruso, Liszt, Brahms and Puccini. Throughout the summer months, there are several planned events, such as concerts by renowned singers, composers, and musicians, and symposiums by opera historians. A schedule of the summer events is posted on the website. For further information about programs, write, call, or e-mail.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
