Biography

Born on October 28, 1943 in Wrietzen an der Oder Cornelia Froboess is only seven years old when coming to early fame as a singer: In the middle of the year 1951 she performs for the RIAS-radio show "Mach mit" live at the Berlin Titania-Palast the song "Pack die Badehose ein" – originally composed for the Schöneberger Sängerknaben.

She is celebrated as the incarnation of the "Berlin brat" and is becoming the first child star of post-war Germany. Her fans are enthralled by her numerous disc recordings and concerts. Her stardom is accompanied by first film appearances, e.g. her first motion picture "Sündige Grenze" (1951) about a band of juvenile smugglers or the music film "Große Star-Parade" (1954).

As a teenager – now called Conny – her star rises even more with popular music films. At the end of the 1950s she and Peter Kraus are celebrated as the juvenile dream couple of West German film. Movies like "Wenn die Conny mit dem Peter... (Teenager-Melodie)" (1958) and "Conny und Peter machen Musik" (1960) do already promote their stars in their very title.

From the middle of the 1960s on Cornelia Froboess more and more concentrates on a career as a stage actress. 1963 she can be seen on stage at the Salzburger Landestheater, afterwards she works for many different theatres including the Staatstheater Braunschweig, the Berlin Schillertheater, the Deutsche Schauspielhaus in Hamburg and the Vienna Burgtheater. The award-winning Froboess becomes one of the most renowned stage actresses of Germany.

In 1972 she is hired by the Munich Kammerspiele an plays the part of Marthe Schwertlein in the much debated production of "Faust", directed by Dieter Dorn, that is also adapted on film and opens in 1988 in German cinemas. In the 1980s Cornelia Froboess returns to the movies again and at the same time is seen on TV regularly.

Her many talents are shown in a broad range of productions: She stars in Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss" ("Veronika Voss", 1981/82) as well as the unexpected smash hit "Knockin" On Heaven's Door" (1997) or the popular children's film "Die wilden Kerle" ("The Wild Soccer Bunch", 2003).
