I found a new guy!!!!!!  Wonderful voice. He  is the baritone on t he DVD Alzira, which I better play. Go to Youtube and find his superb clips.

  Boy, could we use him at the Met!!!  Here are some reviews:

Mark Stryker (Detroit Free Press from 21.10.2013)
German bass-baritone Thomas Gazheli’s Dutchman was a marvel. He brought a
deeply resonant voice to the stage and a heightened sense of feeling — but
also proportion so that his torment rang of true human suffering and
desperate yet dignified yearning.

Huffington Post - 24.10.2013
Bass Baritone Thomas Gazheli's Dutchman was spot-on, and his rich vocal
textures lived up to the title role. His acting delivered on a tormented
soul seeking redemption. His tender, expressive voice played well off and
at times carried Soprano Lori Phillips's Senta, who seemed not always
comfortable in her upper range.

George Bulanda (Detroit News)
Just as you can’t have a convincing performance of Hamlet without a strong
title character, you can’t mount a persuasive production of The Flying
Dutchman without a Dutchman who can deliver the part with panache. There
were no reservations about German bass-baritone Thomas Gazheli, who made
his MOT debut. He’s got a big, brawny voice, but he knows how to use it to
dramatic effect. His first-act Monologue was infused with agony and sad
resignation, but when power was required, he rolled out the cannons.
