A Klingon Christmas Carol

Klingon Christmas Carol

Just when I think I’ve heard it all. A Klingon Christmas Carol? You betcha.

A theater troupe in Minneapolis is performing the Christmas Carol in Klingon costumes, and the entire performance is spoken in Klingon! Apparently they’ve been doing this for a few years now.

To catch this year’s show, you can purchase tickets directy from the Mixed Blood Theatre.

Scrooge has no honor, nor any courage. Can three ghosts help him to become the true warrior he ought to be in time to save Tiny Tim from a horrible fate? Performed in the Original Klingon with English Supertitles, and narrative analysis from The Vulcan Institute of Cultural Anthropology.

The Dickens classic tale of ghosts and redemption adapted to reflect the Warrior Code of Honor and then translated into tlhIngan Hol (That’s the Klingon Language).

Written & Translated by Doqtuj vestai-ruStaj, Q’DroS vestai-Kiln, Qe’pa sutai-Qul, Qob zantai-Hurric, and qurgh sutai-lungqIj

Here’s a news report on their 2007 performance.
