I've definitely seen him in Semiramide (video), Boito's Mefistofele, Verdi's Attila, Don Giovanni, Gounod's Faust, and Bluebeard's Castle in Washington. He did Boris in Madrid in September.

His website still shows it, but a friend says he has canceled his February scheduled appearance at Colorado Opera in Don Pasquale. He thinks at 65 he's too old to learn new parts.
