A brand new opera for and by teenagers.

They thought they were the perfect family ...

Meet the Matsens, a decent, slightly high-minded Bergen family with hard-working parents and pleasant, cooperative teenage children. Enter Simon, the furious 17-year-old they decide, in their goodness, to adopt, and who wakens in this domestic order a force which will shake it to its roots.
