Robert Tear (born March 8, 1939) is a Welsh tenor and conductor. His operatic debut was in 1966 as Peter Quint in The Turn of the Screw on the English Opera Group's tour of England and Russia. In 1970 he debuted at Covent Garden as Lensky in Eugene Onegin. He made his debut as a conductor in 1985 in Minneapolis.
