The Klingon language is one of the hardest languages to learn
Maybe this is just me doing it, but learning Klingon not easy. I gave it a try because Duolingo offers the opportunity to learn for free. I hadn’t gone through two lessons so much that needless to say, I envy those who share Lieutenant Colonel Worf’s native language fluency. Brian Rivera is one such person, especially with his performance in Klingon Hamlet: taH Pagh taHbe’, (To be or not).
The video is twelve years old and only three and a half minutes short, but it’s a great product from Still Picture Production. Set against the backdrop of the night, Rivera quotes the speech as possible – that is the question” written by William Shakespeare, and if you are a fan of the works of the English playwright as well as a fan of the English playwright. In the Klingon language, you’ll want to see the production process.
The neighborhood in Klingon is what stays with you
Rivera didn’t just read words that many of us had to learn in school; he imbued with their feelings. Not only does he dress like one of the great warriors, but his prosthetic and facial makeup are so well suited that he can walk into any Star Trek production and fit. And his viewers agree. As one commenter said, “You haven’t experienced Shakespeare until you read him in the original Klingon.”
Unfortunately, Rivera hasn’t uploaded any more videos showing his amazing grasp of this difficult language nor his love of Star Trek. I can only imagine what he could do with Speech by Marc Antony, “Friends, Romans, Countrymen” from Julius Caesar or Macbeth’s “Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow” speech. Hopefully he will return to share his talents even more in the future. Until then, enjoy Hamlet, courtesy of the Klingon Empire.
