Star Trek and the operaHumour
So, I have a loving husband who happens to be a Star Trek fan. There’s not a whole lot of direct overlap between a sci-fi lover and an opera lover, but one point of contact is in Robert Picardo, (aka The Doctor), and his singing skills on Star Trek: Voyager.
One more gem: the Doctor sings a duet (“Dio, che nell’alma infondere” from Don Carlo, no less) with a miniature holographic version of himself. It’s dubbed, instead of Robert Picardo’s real voice, but you won’t care.
And finally, for way more _Star Trek _than you ever thought could fit in an opera, here’s The Abduction of the Seraglio (A Star Trek Themed Opera), presented by Southern Illinois Music Festival earlier this year.
