Tieta is a 1989 Brazilian telenovela, produced and broadcast by Rede Globo. It originally aired between August 14, 1989, and March 30, 1990, spanning 196 episodes. It was TV Globo's 41st primetime telenovela, preceded by O Salvador da Pátria and followed by Rainha da Sucata .


It was based on Brazilian writer Jorge Amado's 1977 novel of the same name, and was written by Aguinaldo Silva, Ricardo Linhares and Ana Maria Moretzsohn. It was directed by Reynaldo Boury, Ricardo Waddington and Luiz Fernando Carvalho, under general direction by Paulo Ubiratan.

In June 2012 it was released on DVD by Globo Marcas. [1]


Helena Gastal and Lessa de Lacerda designed over one thousand costumes for the novel. Iris Gomes da Costa researched expressions cited in the work of Jorge Amado, and colloquial terms of the region, so that the characters spoke with the accent and used the vocabulary of northeastern Brazil.

The fictional city of Santana do Agreste was composed of 46 buildings, 2 churches, 8 streets, 2 squares, an abandoned circus and 15 ruins. Everything was built in an area of 10,000m², in Guaratiba, a West Zone neighborhood in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The street floors were a reproduction of those made in fiberglass by local artisanin in Laranjeiras, a town in the state of Sergipe. Production artists Cristina Médicis, Marta Kubitschek and Andréa Penafiel took local objects and saints statues from Sergipe to Rio de Janeiro, in order to compose the cenography.



Tieta spanned two soundtrack albums, Tieta and Tieta 2, both released in 1989. During its reprise, in 1994, Som Livre released an album entitled Tieta Especial, compiling the hit songs of the two original albums. Its cover was similar to that of Tieta 2, with a photo of Betty Faria as Tieta.
