In 1981 he was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to opera.


In 1980 he created the role of Aschenbach in the Australian premiere of Death in Venice at the Adelaide Festival.

Having sung Aschenbach in the Australian premiere in Adelaide in 1980, Robert Gard was approached by Tony Palmer to assist in the film version. The creator of the role, Peter Pears, was to sing Aschenbach but was recovering from a stroke and was unavailable for filming at that time. All of the other major roles were also sung by their creators. Gard was initially hired to assist off-screen, and his voice would not be heard in the final product. However, Pears’s recovery proved to be a long-term affair, and Gard was then contracted to perform the role, for the same fee that Pears had accepted.
