Klaus Maria Brandauer in dialogue with George Banu and Irina Margareta Nistor
Klaus Maria Brandauer is one of the few German speaking actors to have risen to international fame. He was already one of Germany's most sought‐after stage actors back in the mid‐1970s, and his heart still belongs to the theatre: he has been a member of the regular cast at Vienna's Burgtheater since 1972, where he has played such important lead characters as Don Carlos, Ferdinand, Tartuffe, Cyrano de Bergerac, Lessing's Nathan, and, not least, Hamlet – a hundred times. He has also played the Jedermann at the Salzburg Festival for almost ten years. In between his stage commitments, Klaus Maria Brandauer also directs. He became world famous in 1982, when he played Hendrik Höfgen in István Szabó's Academy Award‐winning film adaptation of Klaus Mann's “Mephisto”. He has also appeared in the James Bond movie “Never Say Never Again”, as well as in “Out of Africa”, “White Fang”, “Streets of Gold”, “Rembrandt”, “Introducing Dorothy and Tetro”, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Klaus Maria Brandauer plays the psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich in Antonin Svoboda's latest, recently released film “The Strange Case of Wilhelm Reich”. In 2007, he played the leads in Peter Stein's “Wallenstein”, in “Oedipus at Colonos” at Salzburg and also in Kleist's “The Broken Jug” at the Berliner Ensemble. The collaboration with Peter Stein was continued in William Shakespeares “King Lear” premiered 2013 at Burgtheater Vienna with Klaus Maria Brandauer as Lear.
