U The Klingon Opera
Floris Schonfeld, director of ‘u’, the first authentic Klingon opera on earth, made sure publicity for the performance included Klingon speakers on their home planet. A message was translated into Klingon and sent to Qo’noS, the Klingon home planet Kronos, covered in a 4:22 minute short documentary. The Klingon opera has been three years in the making and will premiere in Hague, The Netherlands, in September 2010.

The opera ‘u’ is being produced by Zeebelt Theater, The Hague, in collaboration with the Watermill Center, New York.
The film concept and production was developed at Pool Worldwide, Amsterdam, by creatives Nick Schonfeld and Hesling Reidinga. Filming was shot and edited by director Eldar Gross.
The message was translated and spoken by Klingon language expert Marc Okrand and sent with the CAMRAS Telescope in Dwingeloo, the Netherlands.
