It is with great sadness that Glyndebourne has learnt of the death of opera singer Robert Tear at the age of 72. The Welsh tenor sang at Glyndebourne on a number of occasions, making an unforgettable debut as Aschenbach in the 1989 Glyndebourne On Tour production of Death in Venice. He repeated the role in the 1992 Festival. The Sunday Times described it as ‘a splendid performance’, while The Independent noted: ‘at its centre is Robert Tear’s Aschenbach, his experience and artistry evident in every thoughtful inflection.’
