EVELYN LEAR Evelyn Lear was an illustrious singer, admired worldwide for the breadth of her repertoire and her glorious voice. The Santa Fe Opera joins her many colleagues and fans who mourn her death. Ms. Lear appeared in two operas with the Company, and accompanied her husband, Thomas Stewart, when he sang in Santa Fe as well. She graced us only last summer with a wise and witty master class for the apprentice singers. The Company's deepest condolences go to her family. Susan F. Morris, Chairman Carey R. Ramos, President Charles MacKay, General Director
