Buffalo, NY, February 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Eccentric composer Sabrina Peña Young wanted to create an opera - without leaving her apartment.

And to be honest, I wanted to create a nutty sci-fiopera about a renegade girl who defeats evil geneticists. I'm a nerd atheart."After two years in production, Libertaria: The Virtual Opera will wrapup summer of 2013. The dedicated opera cast has never met in personfor rehearsals and contacts Young entirely through e-mail and Skype.The small animation team uses machinima, an animation style popularized by gamer fan videos.
