The daughter of the court actor Stich and the actress Auguste Crelinger, Clara Liedtke débuted at the early age of fifteen at the Berlin Court Theatre, to which, with the exception of brief sojourns in Schwerin and guest roles at the Vienna Burgtheater, she remained loyal for the rest of her life. To begin with she specialized in playing romantic leads, but later took on more tragic roles.

She was celebrated inter alia for her Shakespeare roles, her interpretation of Ophelia and Desdemona’s suffering receiving frequent praise.
