Lear started her opera career as a member of the Städtische Oper Berlin in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos playing the Composer, a lead role which she would later play at a number of leading opera houses. She played the title role in Alban Berg’s Lulu in 1960 in its Austrian debut in concert form. She had only three weeks to learn the role, having been called in as a late replacement. Her performance was so well received that she played the role in the first staged version since World War II at the Theater an der Wien at the Vienna Festival of 1962 with Karl Böhm conducting. The performance was repeated in 1964 and recorded by Deutsche Grammophon. She also performed in Lulu in the late 1980s, albeit in the mezzo-soprano supporting role of the Countess Geschwitz. She appeared as Nina Cavallini in Robert Altman’s 1976 film Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson. In 1989, she played the role of Queen Elizabeth I of England in the musical Elizabeth and Essex, based on Maxwell Anderson’s 1930 play.

In 1955, having just graduated from Juilliard, she created the role of the heroine Nina in Marc Blitzstein’s Reuben, Reuben – a role that would prompt Leonard Bernstein to name his daughter Nina. In 1961, she created the title role of Giselher Klebe’s Alkmene in Berlin.

Lear created the role of Magna in Robert Ward’s Minutes to Midnight in 1982, followed by creating the role of Ranyevskaya in Rudolf Kelterborn’s Der Kirschgarten in Zurich in 1984.

The Senate of Berlin gave Lear the title of Kammersängerin for her contribution to the opera in that city while the Salzburg Festival honored her with the Max Reinhardt Award. She won a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording in the Grammy Awards of 1966 for her work with Karl Böhm
