The Castleton Festival, Lorin Maazel, Artistic Director, celebrates its fifth anniversary in July with opera, theater, orchestra concerts, and more. Highlights include a new production of Puccini’s Girl of the Golden West, both Cocteau’s play and Poulenc’s opera La Voix Humaine, Verdi’s Otello, and Mostly Mahler – a series of both chamber and orchestral music concerts. Performances will take place at the Castleton Festival campus in Rappahannock County, Virginia, and at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas. There will even be an appearance by Robin and Linda Williams and Their Fine Group on Family Day July 3.
Castleton Festival General Manager Nancy Gustafson came to the Classical WETA studios to tell Marilyn Cooley about the many exciting events at this summer’s Festival.
