Eccentric Composer Produces Animated Opera via Internet

Experimental composer Sabrina Peña Young wanted to create an opera - 
without leaving her apartment! So she rounded up an international
cast and crew using crowdsourcing, Music Xray, and social networks
to create a cutting edge, and slightly psychotic, animated opera.

"I wanted to compose an opera that didn't require a concert hall, 
a cutting edge opera that reaches out to the digital generation. 
And to be honest, I love creating a crazy sci-fi opera about a 
renegade girl who blows up evil reverse-aging geneticists. I'm a 
nerd at heart."

After two years in production, Libertaria: The Virtual Opera will
wrap up summer of 2013. The dedicated opera cast has never met in 
person for rehearsals and contacts Young entirely through e-mail
and Skype. The small animation team uses machinima, an animation
style popularized by gamer fan videos and shares files through 
shared servers. 

Libertaria: The Virtual Opera will premier online and in
festivals simultaneously in the United States and abroad in
October 2013, with a world premier in South Florida hosted by 
composer Dr. Clare Shore. 

Sabrina Peña Young, a music tech expert and obsessive sci-fi fan,
hopes that Libertaria: The Virtual Opera exposes younger 
generations to the exciting world of opera.

"Before YouTube and Twitter, opera was the creative outlet for 
protest and social change. Opera is hip. Opera is now."
