Career as a theater actor
Billerbeck came from Frankfurt an der Oder , where he gained his first stage experience as an extra during his apprenticeship. He actually wanted to become a confectioner , but then completed special training as a radio operator , then studied drama in Leipzig and finally spent two years at the drama studio of the German National Theater in Weimar before he was taken on there. From 1968 to 2004 he was a member of the theater's permanent ensemble.
During his career he played many popular roles, such as the Mackie Messer in Bertolt Brecht's Threepenny Opera , the Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady and the Fiesco in The Fiesco Conspiracy to Genoa . A special highlight of his work was the German premiere of Gija Kantscheli's Music for the Living , in which he was the only actor in a large, except for screams, silent role, while the rest of the cast consisted only of opera singers and a children's choir . After his long service in Weimar , Billerbeck moved to Berlin on a freelance basis , but was still a guest at the Weimar Theater until 2006. Hasso Billerbeck succumbed to a serious illness in mid-January 2011. Stations of his life on:
Working as a voice actor
In the GDR Billerbeck was also often active as a voice actor. Although there was a dubbing studio in Weimar at the time, Billerbeck was also hired in other cities. He synchronized u. a. the title role in the Hungarian cartoon series Pom Pom , for which he was also taken when the synchronization of the series no longer took place in Leipzig, but from now on in Berlin. In addition, he was z. B. repeatedly cast for the American actor Frank Wolff . In the course of the change , Billerbeck withdrew from the industry. One reason he never took up this activity again was that the industry was increasingly under time pressure and now actors are mostly recorded individually and only then placed next to each other in the film. Billerbeck, on the other hand, saw the attraction of this work primarily in standing together in the studio and playing the roles in full interaction.
Hasso Billerbeck was occasionally seen in feature films. Right at the beginning of his acting career, he worked with Captain Florian von der Mühle , alongside Manfred Krug and Rolf Herricht . He remained connected to the medium until his death, but was rarely engaged due to his specialization in the theater.
