Live reading of The Trouble With Tribbles, Friday March 15, 2013, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.  See:   https://www.facebook.com/events/484703878256197/?ref=3 for more details.

The following productions were made for the stage, not for film or video, but were filmed:

The following appears to be a theatrical production of Wrath of Khan:


The following appears to be a parody entitled, "James T. Kirk, Superstar: A Spock Opera"

Portland, Oregon apparently offers Trek in Woodland Park in North Portland each summer.  Parts or all of it has been videotaped and put on the web.

This group in the Southern Illinois Music Festival has re-purposed Mozart as Star Trek.  Posted by Calib Gomes on July 9, 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyx2geLddfg (1:55:56). (Golden Age, adults, stage, sets, costumes, full orchestra..)  You can't have Star Trek Opera without Klingons. They offered the live audience subtitles, and for the film, subtitles in English would help a lot.

The Pacific Opera Project is apparently under the mistaken impression they originated Star Trek Opera.  How wrong they are!  Nevertheless, here are a commercial for their work as well as the finale, the two parts of their Star Trek themed reworking of Mozart's "Abduction from the Seragilo" which I found posted online.  If anyone has links to more, please let me know!
