Samuel Edward Ramey (born March 28, 1942 in Colby, Kansas) is an American operatic bass . At the height of his career, he was greatly admired for his range and versatility, having possessed a sufficiently accomplished bel canto technique to enable him to sing the music of Handel, Mozart, Rossini, yet power enough to handle the more overtly dramatic roles written by Verdi and Puccini. He married his third wife, soprano Lindsey Larsen, on 29 June 2002.
