Tear studied as a chorister at Britain's famous King's College, Cambridge and went on to make his operatic debut for the English Opera Group in a 1966 production of Benjamin Britten's "The Turn of the Screw".

His last stage appearance was at London's Royal Opera House in Turandot, in 2009.

Tear's agent Martin Campbell-White tells the BBC, "He was a major, major European and world artist who had a fantastic varied career, starting as a chorister at King's College Cambridge and quickly becoming one of Britain's great oratoria singers, and moving into opera."
