First performed live to much acclaim in Rome, Italy, in November 2005, it has subsequently had further live performances in countries as diverse as Poland, The Netherlands, and Brazil, who last hosted it in 2008 (a report, with various photographs and video clips, can be seen here). Lika Geribello, the executive producer of those performances, is also producing the new ones alongside Cristiane Rossetto. The shows will take place at the world-renowned venue on May 2nd, 4th, 7th and 9th, 2013.

With musical direction and conducting by Rick Wentworth (who also co-produced the album with Roger), will be vocal performances from Lina Mendes, Gabriella Pace, Keila Moraes, Marcos Paulo, Giovanni Tristacci, David Marcondes, Leonardo Neiva, Eduardo Amir and Leonardo Pace. There will also be a children's chorus, and the Coral Lirico do Theatro providing the main chorus line. The Orquestra Sinfônica Municipal will be performing the score, under the watchful eye of Wentworth and assistant conductor, Luis Gustavo Petri. For these productions, the Director is Andre Heller-Lopes, with the set design by Renato Theobaldo, costume design by Rosa Magalhaes, and the lighting has been designed by Fabio Retti.
