He appeared as Niek Shadow at Glyndebourne in 1977, undertaking the same role at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Teatro Colón and in 1992 for Aix-en-Provence. He made his Covent Garden début in 1982 as Figaro in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, a role in which he had appeared in the previous season at the Vienna State Opera and at La Scala, Milan. It was for him that Covent Garden devised a staged version or The Damnation of Faust by Berlioz and he has also been heard there in Gounod's Faust and in Offenbach's last opera.

His international career has continued with appearances in leading opera-houses throughout the world, demonstrating his versatility, dramatic power and the resonance and flexibility of his remarkable voice Samuel Ramey's Dote with the Devil, which includes many elements at the heart of his repertoire, was first heard in 1996 at A very Fisher Hall in New York, with the St Luke's Orchestra, conducted by Julius Rudel.
