So, after opening on July 4 "with the appropriate fireworks," the conductor said, the Castleton Festival will offer four Britten chamber operas: The Turn of the Screw, Albert Herring, The Rape of Lucretia and Britten's version of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. In between all the performances, there will be career-honing activities for the young musicians. "I'll be giving a master class in conducting for the first time with selected students," Maazel said. Workshops for young people interested in theater production will also be a part of the experience. "There will be wall-to-wall programs covering just about every aspect of opera," Maazel said. The eminent conductor plans to invite notable artists from the opera world to the festival to mentor and coach the participants. "That's something desperately needed," Maazel said. "Young people are always asking me 'where do we go, how do we learn.' They need points of reference."
