German cabinet card of the actor Sonnenthal as Wallenstein in full costume. Identified mount recto and in period hand mount verso. SONNENTHAL, ADOLF VON (1834-1909), Austrian actor, was born of Jewish parentage in Budapest on the 21st of December 1834. Though brought up in penury and apprenticed to a working tailor, he yet cultivated the histrionic art, and was fortunate in receiving the support of a co-religionist, the actor Bogumil Dawison, who trained him for the stage. He made his first appearance at Temesvar in 1851, and after engagements at Hermannstadt and Graz came in the winter of 1855-1856 to KOnigsberg in Prussia, where his first performance was so successful that he was engaged by Heinrich Laube for the Burgtbeater in Vienna, making his first appearance as Mortimer in Schillers Maria Stuart. Under Laubes careful tuition he developed within three years into an actor of the first order, excelling both in tragedy and comedy; and in 1882, after 25 years of brilliant service at the Court Theatre, he was given a patent of nobility. In 1884 he became manager-in-chief of the theatre; and in 1887-1888 acted as artistic adviser. He visited the United States in 1885, and again in 1899 and 1902, achieving great success. His chief parts were Nathan in Lessings Nathan der Weise, Wallenstein, and Der Meister von Palmyra. - 1156
