Sembrich, Marcella (1858-1935)

Autograph Musical Quotation

, signed "Marcella Sembrich". Dec, 1910. Excellent condition.
Very attractive signature on a horizontal album leaf, with sentiment in German and three-bar musical quotation from Mozart's Figaro ("Deh, vieni non tardar"). Inscribed to Renée Reiss, the daughter of the Metropolitan Opera comprimario Albert Reiss.
While Sembrich is best known for coloratura roles, during her tenure at Covent Garden, before her 25-year career at the Met, she was a great favorite in Mozart operas, including the role of Susanna in Figaro.
