DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch premiered in 2005 for a one-year engagement at Casino Figueira daz Foz. Told through a fusion of dance, grand illusion, video imagery and aerial artistry, DEZIRE is a seduction of the senses, ranging from the lure of purity, beauty and permanence to the excitement of lust, passion and urgency.

With over 300 live performances and 225,000 spectators over its 12-month run at Casino Figueira daz Foz, DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch was a tremendous success for the casino, and has morphed into an immersive, interactive production suitable for a variety of venue types worldwide.

Dezire tells the story of a moment in the life of an average man magically transported to a world where his every Dezire is within reach. Feel his anguish as two equally desirable but vastly different women exert their magnetic powers over him and he must only chose one.

DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch is available for booking for multi-week engagements worldwide. The show has been designed to perform in a theater and is best presented in this type of venue.


The DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch production includes the following:

  • Pop Soundtrack from the DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch production orchestrated and recorded by the DEZIRE: Temptations of Touch creative team. (Originally recorded third party soundtracks must be licensed for performance.)

Shipping requirements can be scaled depending on show size and scope of technical infrastructure required for the performance. The show can adapt to existing staging, lighting and rigging layouts. POET Theatricals’ goal is to reduce the preproduction cost and installation of the show as much as possible, and we work with presenters to trim these expenses.

Examples of shipping requirements are:
