Emmanuelle Chimento is a French lyric soprano born in Aix-en-Provence. She has won acclaim for her vocal power, golden timbre and stage presence.

In 2022, she made her debut at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Le Vol du Boli, a creation by Abderrahmane Sissako and Damon Albarn. She plays the role of La femme du tirailleur.

Later in the season, she sang the role of Violetta (La Traviata) in an adaptation by Ensemble Balance (conductor Friederike Kienle).

In 2021, she was awarded the Prix Espoir by the Ravel Festival following her participation in the Académie Ravel in Saint-Jean de Luz.

Emmanuelle Chimento initially trained as an actress at the Théâtre des Ateliers in Aix-en-Provence.
She graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris and is currently studying with Ulrike Sonntag at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart.

Her interest in theatrical theory, which has long permeated her work as an actress and singer, has led her to experiment with directing for the first time. Her show, Dido and Aeneas, will be performed in September 2023 at the Haydn Festival in La Roche-Posay before going on tour. In 2024, she will be assistant director to James Bonas at the Opéra-Comique.
