In a brilliant career spanning thirty years, Robert Prévost designed lighting, sets and costumes for theatre, opera, ballet and television.  He also directed theatre, and his wide-ranging talents included painting and sculpture. Strongly associated with the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde (Montréal), he designed for les Grands Ballets Canadiens (Montréal), the Stratford Festival and l’Opéra du Québec.
