Robert Tear “absorbing” in Lulu 1979

Posted by Jonathan Irons on 31 March 2011

Lulu in the Observer 1979Here’s a brief postscript to the many obituaries for Robert Tear. I read in the Guardian and the Telegraph that he had sung in the world première of Lulu in 1979, with the new third act by Friedrich Cerha.

After a brief glance into the hallowed UE archive folders, I found the Observer’s review of the première, where Tears’ “absorbing performance” as the painter is commended.
