A Paris-based music theatre company, La Chambre aux échos commissioned the chamber orchestra version of the oratorio in 2012 and gave the first premiere in November 14th 2013 in Melos-Ethos Festival in Bratislava, Slovakia. The oratorio has since been performed on several festivals (Saint-Denis, Bergen, Njord, Lublin) as well as New York, Paris and Copenhagen and various opera houses in France.

In Helsinki, the artists from La Chambre aux échos will be performing together with Avanti! Chamber Orchestra. The performance is conducted by Clément Mao-Takacs, a Saariaho specialist, and directed by Aleksi Barrière.
