Aurora is a Spanish language telenovela produced by the United States-based television network Telemundo. It starred Sara Maldonado, Eugenio Siller, and Jorge Luis Pila.

As part of the 2010-2011 season, Telemundo aired the serial from November 1, 2010 to May 20, 2011 weeknights at 8pm/7c central, replacing El Clon. As with most of its other telenovelas, the network broadcasts English subtitles as closed captions on CC3.

Plot[edit]

Set in New York City, the story begins in 1990 with a 20-year-old dancer named Aurora Ponce de León (Sara Maldonado). She attends New York School of the Arts with her two bestfriends, Natalia Suárez (Talina Duclaud) and Vanessa Miller (Vanessa Pose). One night after a dance rehearsal, they all go to a bar, where Aurora meets Lorenzo Lobos (Eugenio Siller), a dance instructor and single father. Aurora and Lorenzo fall madly in love. But Vanessa, who had always been jealous of Aurora, is infuriated by this because she is also in love with Lorenzo. She tried everything to separate the two, going as far as inviting Lorenzo to Aurora's lavish twentieth birthday party (Lorenzo was unaware that Aurora was wealthy), where she makes sure he sees Federico (Ismael La Rosa) kiss Aurora. Lorenzo storms off, believing that he has been betrayed. Aurora runs after Lorenzo and declares her love for him, but doesn't work and Lorenzo wants nothing more to do with Aurora.

Aurora returns home heartbroken and after an argument with her father, Gustavo (Braulio Castillo), she faints. Gustavo takes her to his cryogenic clinic to run tests. It is discovered that Aurora is pregnant with Lorenzo's baby. Her father refuses to tell Lorenzo about the pregnancy and sends her as far away from him as possible.

A few months pass and Aurora tries to run away and return to Lorenzo, but she falls and goes into labor. She gives birth to a girl, who she names Blanca. Aurora becomes very ill and on her deathbed, calls Lorenzo, and says to him with her dying breath, "I will always love you." Lorenzo hears a flat line and all the commotion, and Gustavo decides to freeze Aurora in a cryogenic capsule.

Aurora wakes up after 20 years, only to discover that Lorenzo (Jorge Luis Pila) is married to Natalia (Sandra Destenave). Blanca (Lisette Morelos) doesn't know that Aurora is her mother, because she was raised by her actual grandparents who told her that her mother was her sister. Aurora plays along with it and keeps her real identity a secret. However, after Lorenzo's son Martin (Eugenio Siller) falls in love with Aurora, all the secrets starts coming out. Nothing remains the same.
