Gal Costa celebrates over half a century in music with songs from across her career: The Tropicália star sings new arrangements of her many hits, while also covering classics from the great Brazilian songbook, including songs by Gilberto Gil, Djavan, Adriana Calcanhotto and Jorge Mautner, as well as younger generations of Brazilian musicians. Many of these tracks can be found on her new live album A Pele do Futuro.

The concert is divided into three acts: the first focuses on music that was written under the shadow of the Brazilian dictatorship in the 1960s and 1970s, including tracks by Caetano Veloso and Roberto Carlos, while the second part brings together a number of love songs written across those two decades and beyond. To close the evening, Costa captures the carnival spirit, performing a number of her renowned frevos recorded in the late 1970s, as well as jubilant hits like Chuva de Prata (Ed Wilson/ Ronaldo Bastos), and Azul by Djavan.
