First, my apologies for misquoting Mark Twain!
So, The 3 Chinese Tenors would be the first to agree that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery—after all, our own creation was inspired by the original Three Tenors! However, as anyone who has been to one of our shows would know, we like to do things our own way and hope that our audience has as good a time as we do while doing it!
Since we started over 10 years ago, a few other trios of Chinese tenors have popped up, most of them formed by individuals who have sung with us before (believe it or not!). They all call themselves names that are variations of “Three” plus “Tenors”. Hao has been known to say, “Oh, if it makes someone happy, let them do it!” However, we want to state for the record that the real “Three Chinese Tenors” is still alive and well and planning a new show for the not-too-distant future, no matter what any other trio of Chinese singers might say!
