A Complete Klingon-Language Opera

U is a project to make a complete Klingon-language opera. There are some scheduled performances coming up soon in The Hague. Here's a description from the official website:

The libretto of ‘u’ is based on the epos of Kahless the unforgettable. Betrayed by his brother and witness to his father’s brutal slaying, Kahless is pitted against his bitter enemy the mighty tyrant Molor. To regain his honor he must travel into the underworld, create the first Bat’leth, be united with his true love the lady Lukara and fight many epic battles. Through this awe inspiring adventure Kahless redefines what it is to be truly Klingon. With the help of Marc Okrand, the worlds leading Klingon language expert, we have managed to piece together the stories in their original epic-poetic form for the first time.

A sample video that I found on YouTube suggests that the opera is still in its early development. Or, at least, I hope that this isn't the finished product. Nonetheless, it's a praiseworthy effort. Qapla'!
