Shakespeare in Klingon

In Holland gibt's demnächst eine Oper in Klingonisch, noch besser allerdings: Die Washington Shakespeare Company wird einen ganzen Shakespeare-Abend veranstalten. In Klingonisch.

At the company's annual benefit Sept. 25 in Rosslyn, selections from "Hamlet" and "Much Ado About Nothing" will be performed in the language that was invented for the Klingon characters of the "Star Trek" films. Actors will be speaking the verse in two languages, English and Klingon, and the lines in each will correspond to the Bard's signature meter: iambic pentameter. The translations are courtesy of the Klingon Language Institute, a Pennsylvania group that published "The Klingon Hamlet" several years ago, in addition to composing the Klingon version of "Much Ado About Nothing."
