I think you should correct the entry about the Commendatore because he certainly was never done by Sir Thomas Allen. The Commendatore is a basso profondo while Sir Thomas is - as you should know - a baritone. In the clip you're showing he played his "trademark role", the Don Giovanni.

Thanks for the correction S.L! That was a big oops on my part. Thanks for reading!
