Sophie Auguste Friederike (born Düring, died Stich) Crelinger-Stich

* 07.10.1795 in Berlin; ✝ 11.04.1865 in Berlin




Auguste Crelinger began her theatrical career at the Urania Theatre in Berlin, where she was discovered by August Wilhelm Iffland. In 1812 she began an engagement at the Royal Theatre, and remained there from then on. After numerous guest appearances in Prussia and elsewhere, in 1862 she retired in grand style after a final, triumphant performance of Iphigenie, her best-known role. Crelinger was chiefly celebrated for ‘heroine’ parts. The only one of her Shakespeare roles we know about is that of Lady Macbeth.
