Theodor Liedtcke

* 23.10.1828 in Königsberg (Prussia); ✝ 20.11.1902 in Berlin




Liedtcke, the son of a manufacturer, joined early on a troupe of travelling players as a singer and soon secured an engagement in Stettin. In 1850 a guest appearance in Berlin followed, and this in turn paved the way for a settled place at the Court Theatre there, where he became an audience favourite, achieving increasing success in comic and bon-viveur roles. In 1860 he married his fellow actress Clara Hoppé (née Stich). He bid a final farewell to the stage in 1889.
