In 1976, Otello marks an important chapter in the operatic history in Puerto Rico by presenting one of the most spectacular large-scaled opera productions ever produced, featuring extraordinary performances from an entire Puerto Rican cast of vocal artists, at a cost of $ 150,000 which was sponsored by the company Union Carbide and the Government of Puerto Rico. Over 180 artists were hired to team up and work in their field of professional specializations; directors, designers, musicians, artists and more.
