The Color of Passion[1] (Original title in Spanish: El color de la pasión) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Roberto Gómez Fernández for Televisa. The telenovela is written by Cuauhtémoc Blanco, who wrote the telenovelas Mi pecado, Cadenas de amargura, and El manantial.[2][3]

The plot revolves around Rebeca (Michelle Renaud / Claudia Ramírez), a woman who always hated her sister Adriana (Ariadne Díaz) for having everything including the man whom Rebecca loved. Rebeca murders her sister to end up with the man and becomes the step mother/aunt of her sister's daughter Lucía. (Esmeralda Pimentel). Nora (Ximena Romo) (Lucia's half sister and daughter of Rebecca) resents Lucia for the same reasons Rebecca hated Adriana, as history repeats itself.

The series stars Erick Elias as Marcelo, Esmeralda Pimentel as Lucía, Claudia Ramírez as Rebeca, René Strickler as Alonso, Eugenia Cauduro as Magdalena and Ariadne Díaz as Adriana.[4][5]

Plot summary[edit]

First stage[edit]

Scene of Adriana (Ariadne Díaz) and Alonso (Horacio Pancheri).

Adriana Murillo de Gaxiola (Ariadne Díaz) is married to Alonso Gaxiola (Horacio Pancheri), owner of a Talavera factory in Puebla. Magdalena (Ana Isabel Torre) and Rebeca (Michelle Renaud), sisters of Adriana, live with her sister and husband due to them being orphans. Alonso and Adriana have a solid and happy marriage, but are unaware of Rebeca's true envious nature, which she masks by being a "sweet angel". This facade does not fool Magdalena, who suspects Rebeca's true nature.[6]

Rebeca has always been secretly in love with Alonso, and therefore harbors envious feelings towards her sister; that feeling becomes hatred upon learning that Adriana will soon become a mother. Rebecca's wicked nature extends to her sister Magdalena, who was responsible that Magdalena was left at the alter. Because of this, Magdalena develops depression and is helpless in uncovering Rebeca's secret.[6]


Soon, Adriana discovers all of Rebeca's secrets and kicks her out of their house. However, they get into an argument which ends with the balcony railing snapping and causing Adriana to fall from the second floor, hitting her head on the glass table below.

Tragically, Adriana loses her life, but miraculously her daughter survives and is named Lucía, after Adriana's mother.[6]

Second stage[edit]

Scene of discussion between Marcelo (Erick Elias), Rebeca (Claudia Ramírez) and Lucía (Esmeralda Pimentel).

It's been 24 years since the tragic accident. Rebeca (Claudia Ramírez) and Alonso (René Strickler) are married and are the parents of their daughter, Nora (Ximena Romo), an unbalanced, envious and selfish girl, who has always felt less than her sister and wants everything she has. In addition Rebeca, more than an aunt, has been a mother for Lucía (Esmeralda Pimentel), although secretly hates her as she considers Lucía to be the living proof of the great love that there once was between her sister Adriana and Alonso. This frustration leads Rebeca to have thousands of lovers, one of them is Féderico Valdivia Fuentes (Alfonso Dosal), a man much younger than her, and who is so obsessed with Rebeca so much that commits suicide in front of her when she breaks up with him.[7][6]

Lucía is a young, noble and sweet girl of good feelings that is about to marry Rodrigo Zúñiga (Mariano Palacios),[7] her boyfriend of most of her life. However, she finds out her sister, Nora, is sleeping with Rodrigo after he leaves Lucia planted in the altar. This causes Lucía to fall into a brief depression.[7]

Féderico's brother, Marcelo Escalante Fuentes, (Erick Elías) arrives in Puebla to take revenge on the woman who lead to his brother's death, but is surprised to learn that the woman he seeks, Adriana Murillo, died 24 years ago. This leads him to delve into the Gaxiola-Murillo family and there he meets Lucía, who he falls in love with, not knowing she is the niece of Rebeca, the woman he seeks and for which his half-brother committed suicide, but things will not be so easy for Marcelo since Lucía does not want to know anything about love after the trauma she experienced on her wedding day.[7]

He gets Lucía to fall in love with him and for reasons of destiny they are separated again but will fight to be together forever and overcome each obstacle (especially those imposed by Nora and Rebecca) to consolidate their love.[7][8]
