Biography

Nikolaus Gröbe's first movie role was already a lead in Frank Beyer's film SUSPICION of 1989. A second main role followed the same year, this time in EINMAL ARIZONA, directed by Hans-Günther Bücking.

Nikolaus Gröbe has since appeared in many tv feature films and serials, such as DERRICK, DER LANDARZT, DIE STADTINDIANER, IM NAMEN DES GESETZES and SISKA. He constantly played in the serials KÖNIGSTEIN and MARIENHOF and appeared in TATORT and POLIZEIRUF 110.
On stage Nikolaus performed in THE RAPE OF THE SABINES, THE MOUSETRAP (Christie), CABARET, ROCK'N'ROLL (Tom Stoppard) at theaters in Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig and Dresden.

Working for and with children has always been near and dear to Nikolaus. He eg. successfully staged the musical EIN MoMu IN DER S-BAHN and repeatedly toured through Germany with high-quality orchestras (eg. Staatskapelle Berlin, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig), presenting concert events for children like SLEEPING BEAUTY, HANSEL AND GRETEL, PETER AND THE WOLF that aim to invite participation.

At the Berliner Staatsoper Unter den Linden Nikolaus staged KALIF STORCH UND DAS ZAUBERWORT, also appearing as narrator.
His arrangement and staging of THE NUTCRACKER SUITE as well as DER GEHEIMNISVOLLE WEIHNACHTSTRAUM and FLORENTINE features the reknowned Saxon Brass Philharmonics and is currently playing at theaters in Saxony.

Nikolaus also spoke almost all roles in the latest version of SCHLAUMÄUSE, an interactive software for the development of children's lingual skills personally launched by Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer in November 2012.
SCHLAUMÄUSE helps children in more than 11000 German day care centers explore the world(s) of language (Deutscher Bildungsmedien Preis 2013/German Educational Media Award).

Nikolaus was collaborating with the Konzerthaus am Berliner Gendarmenmarkt in various projects during 2012 and 2013.
