I’m nearly off to opening night of Elixir. Meanwhile, I’m pondering a Klingon opera:

The Klingon opera Mr. Schönfeld is developing is called “ ’u’.” The apostrophes before and after the “u” are part of the title and are pronounced by Mr. Schönfeld like short coughs. The title, he said, stands for universe or universal.

Do they use Klingon instruments, I wonder?

I read about it here (Note: Link no longer working.). Of course I heard of Klingon opera during my Star Trek years, but since then I hadn’t really thought about it. Bad me, I guess.
