This group in the Southern Illinois Music Festival has re-purposed Mozart as Star Trek.  Posted by Calib Gomes on July 9, 2014: (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 is video online of two performances of their work, an English Star Trek libretto created by artistic director Josh Shaw of Mozart's "Abduction from the Seragilo" performed at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood in March 2015...
