Kuningas Lear (King Lear) is an opera in two acts by Aulis Sallinen, with a libretto by the composer, based on the play by William Shakespeare and premiered in 2000; it was Sallinen's sixth opera. Kuningas Lear was commissioned by and first performed by Finnish National Opera on 15 September 2000 at the Finnish National Opera House. Sallinen has spoken of the major thought that went into recreating the dramaturgy of the piece, shortening sections and deleting characters from the cast

Born in 1935, Aulis Sallinen is the most prominent composer to ride a resurgent wave in Finnish opera that began in the mid-1970s and saw several works enjoy international success. His third stage work was jointly commissioned by Covent Garden and produced there in 1987, though this Guildhall School of Music and Drama staging by Martin Lloyd-Evans represents its first UK outing since. Dramatically, it's a difficult piece to pin down. On the way he becomes king, then wins the Battle of Crécy, and lays siege to Calais; the opera ends with him marching on Paris.
