Plšcido Domingo Says Three Tenors Reunion Is Unlikely

Classic Arts News   Plšcido Domingo Says Three Tenors Reunion Is Unlikely
A week after Luciano Pavarotti told reporters that he expected the Three Tenors to perform again, Plšcido Domingo said yesterday that it was unlikely, the Washington Post reports.

The operatic supergroup, which consisted of Pavarotti, Domingo, and Jos_ Carreras, debuted in 1990 and has performed occasionally since. The trio's recordings have enjoyed huge crossover success, and its concerts are invariably sold out.

Visiting Hong Kong last week as part of his lengthy farewell tour, Pavarotti said of the Three Tenors, "I think we are going to make another concert or two...before I retire."

But Domingo, who directs Los Angeles Opera and Washington National Opera as well as conducting and singing, told the Post that he was simply too busy to reunite with Pavarotti and Carreras. "You can never tell what is going to happen, of course, but I don't see any possibility for the Three Tenors," he said.

The three were last scheduled to perform in Monterrey, Mexico, in June, but Pavarotti withdrew because of laryngitis and Domingo and Carraras performed without him. Previously, according to the Post, the last performance of the tenors was in Bath, England, in August 2003.
