BWW TV: Watch the Melodrama Unfold in Highlights from DESTINY OF DESIRE at the Goodman

The plot twists, outrageous circumstances and fast-paced narrative style of the telenovela arrive on the Goodman stage this spring in Destiny of Desire by Karen Zacarías. Click below to watch highlights from the show, plus follow this link for photos!

Filled with original live music-arranged and performed in English and Spanish by Rosino Serrano-and movement by choreographer Robert Barry Fleming, Destiny of Desire is Zacarías' smart, subversive and comic study of the clashes of the haves and have-nots that simultaneously honors and parodies the beloved Latin American TV serial drama.

When women take destiny into their own hands, the world transforms! On a stormy night in small town Mexico, two baby girls are born-one to poverty, one to privilege-then secretly switched. Eighteen years later the girls meet, brought together by misfortune. Or is it fate?

The 11-member company includes Esperanza America, Elisa Bocanegra, Eduardo Enrikez, Evelina Fernández, Fidel Gomez, Cástulo Guerra, Ricardo Gutierrez, Ruth Livier, Mauricio Mendoza, Ella Saldana North and Rosino Serrano. The creative team includes François-Pierre Courture (sets), Julie Weiss (costumes), Pablo Santiago (lights), John Zalewski(sound), Serrano (composer/music director) and Fleming (choreography).

Destiny of Desire, produced in association with South Coast Repertory, appears now through April 16 (opening night is March 20) in the Albert Theatre.
