Head to the Sembrich for a unique cultural experience!

The Sembrich, the lakeside summer home and teaching studio of Metropolitan Opera Diva Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935), is now a museum and cultural space celebrating her life and the music she loved. Madame Sembrich was a pianist, violinist, vocal teacher, and Polish patriot. Mme. Sembrich was the first singer to assume the role of Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia at The Metropolitan Opera House during the opening season of 1883.

Located on a wooded peninsula on Lake George and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Sembrich contains artifacts, photographs, and memorabilia of her life and career at the Metropolitan Opera, as well as in Europe.

Summer events include concerts by renowned singers, composers, and musicians. Also lectures, symposiums by opera historians, and film evenings.

The Sembrich is a Path Through History attraction. We proudly participate in the Lake George Area Military Discount program. The museum is located on the seasonal Greater Glens Falls Transit Trolley route.
