Julius Pabst

* 18.10.1817 in Wilhelmsruhe; ✝ 22.10.1881 in Dresden

Theatrical Advisor, Director



After completing his studies in Breslau and Halle, Pabst first worked as a tutor, before moving in 1855 to the Dresden Royal Court Theatre (from 1860 onwards with the rank of court advisor), where he was active until 1881 as a playwright and director. He wrote poems, dramas and one opera; however, his work remained mostly unpublished.

Pabst created a stage adaptation of As You Like It for the Dresden celebrations of Shakespeare’s 300th birthday. He also wrote an epilog to this play, which was published separately. Both the epilog and his stage adaptation were performed at the Dresden Royal Court Theatre in 1864.
