"The composers cry, the singers laugh!"

Translation:Compozitoarele plâng, cântăreții râd!

Why is compozitorii plang correct? I would think compozitorii plangi would be correct because it would seem to me to be plural

It is plural, but the correct conjugation for 3rd person plural is plâng. See for yourself: [link].

A real disadvantage at learning Romanian via English is, that you do not have a real distinction between the genders. So "composers" could be translated with "compozitoarele" or "compozitorii". At least for me - whose native language would support this distinction - this makes it a bit harder :)
