OTTAWA, Feb. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - One of Canada's best-known artists, Robert
Lepage, has received the 10th Glenn Gould Prize in recognition of his unique lifetime contribution to
Mr. Lepage has a well-deserved reputation, in Canada and
internationally, for his incredible work as a director, playwright,
actor and filmmaker. His highly visual style integrates new
technologies and creative art forms, resulting in a sense of ritual,
magic and wonder.
In 2008, to mark the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, Mr. Lepage's production company, Ex

celebrate four centuries of history.
On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada,
