Judith Chemla’s passion for acting

Judith Chemla’s passion for acting was born when a high school teacher showed her class Peter Brook’s legendary play The Mahabharata. She graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique in Paris in 2007. Shortly afterwards, Chemla made her debut as Célimène in Le Misanthrope at the Comédie française, where she worked until 2009. The French actress has since appeared in various stage and television roles, but is best known for her appearances in the films Camille redouble (or Camille Rewinds, 2012), Une vie (or A Woman’s Life, 2016) and Beautiful Lies (2010).

First appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

In addition to her love of acting, Chemla developed an interest in music from an early age, having studied voice at the Aubervilliers conservatory and singing such roles as Dido in Crocodile (a production based on Henry Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas) and Violetta in Benjamin Lazar’s production of Verdi’s La traviata. In 2015, she made her directorial debut with the musical recital Crack in the Sky, for which she also wrote some of the lyrics and music.

Chemla will be making her first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in the 2018–19 season.
