what do aliens wear to the opera?

September 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

Ok so popular music goes highbrow in a whole new way. One of my classes watched an episode of the Jerry Springer Show to investigate some elements of symbolic violence.  That show became an opera not long ago. But to raise even higher the wrinkled brows of the Klingons among us, we can now put on our finery and head to the boxes to watch ‘u’ an opera in Klingon!

Quiet in the cheap seats or I’ll Klingon death grip you.

You can read about the opera here

Of particular interest is the message sent in Klingon to the star Arcterus, the home solar system of the Klingons according to Star Trek. The message was voiced by Marc Okrand, the creator of the language himself.  I wonder if he felt weird doing it.
