Lorin Maazel and Madame Butterfly

MaazelOn July 13 conductor Lorin Maazel passed away.  Maazel , 84, was a child prodigy who began leading orchestras at the age of 9.  His final performance was a production of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, which took place at the Castleton Festival in Virginia two days earlier. 

Tomer Zvulun, General and Artistic Director of the Atlanta Opera, collaborated with Maazel as stage director for Butterfly.  The Castleton production, which featured sets designed by Erhard Rom, was a joint venture with Atlanta Opera and New Orleans Opera  and will be featured in Atlanta this November.
