Join David J. Peterson, one of the world’s most famous language creators. Not only did he invent the Dothraki language for ‘Game of Thrones’ and the language used in Walt Disney film ‘Thor: The Dark World’, he has also invented the language Vōv for Eduardo Miranda’s opera ‘Lampedusa’.

“It’s a really fun and bizarre piece and I think you’ll like it. What we are seeing is a language which is outside of time. And what you will see in the opera is a human who is able to learn the language and use it. It raises an interesting question of what might have happened if humanity gone in a different direction using this language as its base.” – David J. Peterson
