Picture of Thomas Harper
This interview from 1998 tells much about his career and also has his picture. Thomas Harper is a tenor, saxophonist and clarinettist. As far as information available, there is no confirmation that he was really strangled right while singing the last note of this Celeste Aida recording, though that's precisely what it sounds like.
Repertory excerpts: Das Rheingold (Mime, Loge), Siegfried (Mime), Hanzel und Gretel Witch), La Bohème, Pagliacci, La Juive, Boris Godunov, Rigoletto, Parsifal, etc

Some cities where he sang: Seattle, Dortmund, Hamburg, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Nürnberg, Saarbrücken, Essen, Lucerne, Geneva, Torino, Treviso, de Genève, Santiago, Dallas, Theater Hagen, Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern, Landestheater Coburg, etc
