Jacques Lassalle was born in 1936. Fr om 1957-61 he studied at the Parisian Conservatory of Dramatic Art. After graduating from the Conservatory, Lassalle tried to break with the theatre: he changed workplaces and began teaching. In 1964 he opened the Theatre Studio in Vitry. Here he staged: The Second Surprise of Love' by Marivaux, 'La Locandiera' by Goldoni, 'Homework' by F.X. Kroetz. In 1972 the Theatre Studio received the status of a professional theatre. From 1983-90 Lassalle was the director of the National Theatre of Strasbourg and of the Higher School of Drama at this theatre. Productions: Tartuffe’ by Moliere, ‘Emilia Galotti' by G. Lessing, Carlo Goldoni's 'Mamma', ‘Ridiculous Love' by M. Kundera, ‘Happy Dodge’ by Marivaux, 'Rosmersholm' by H, Ibsen, ‘Everything as it Must Be’ by Pirandello etc.

On 4 July 1990 he became Administrative Director of the Comedie Francaise. Productions: 'Servant in Love’ by C. Goldoni, ‘Don Juan' and 'Misanthrope' by Moliere, etc. Since 1994 Lassalle has been an independent director and he has founded the Company ‘For Kind Memory’. He directs frequently abroad, in Canada, Italy, Argentina, Switzerland etc. Since 1994 he teaches at the Supreme National Conservatory of Drama Art. He is the author of the plays: 'Two in Winter', ‘An Uncertain Revival in Anna's Life', 'Jonathan of the 30s', 'Announcement of Search’ and others.

In St. Petersburg Lassalle has proved that he is a skillful interpreter. He has managed to take the ingenuous plot of Moliere to transcendental heights. In the moralistic, everyday story the knowledge about improbable religious cleansings and the regeneration of guilty souls is revived.
With the blessing of the BDT’s artistic director Kirill Lavrov Jacques Lassalle has pulled the play away from a long-trodden path. The French master has tried to find a drama wh ere everyone has seen only a comedy. Without modernizing, but sharply changing the tonality. (...) At the BDT a stylistically flawless, very graceful performance has appeared
