German actor; born at Breslau 1757; died in Berlin Dec. 20,1801. He made his début in 1777, at Leipsic, where he remained until 1779, when hewent to Hamburg. After a stay of four years in that city he went to Berlin.

Fleck was one of the leading actors of his time; and so highly esteemed was he that on his death Abramson was commissioned to strike a commemorative medallion bearing the inscription, "Gross als Künstler; bieder als Mensch." His best rôles were Wallenstein, Götz, Karl Moor, Otto von Wittelsbach, Essex, and Tancred.
