If you’ve missed out on this season’s top-notch opera, theater and classical music performances so far, here’s a reason to make it to the Castleton Festival this weekend: Rappahannock News subscribers can get 50% off on tickets to three of this weekend’s performances.

The weekend’s bill includes Castleton’s production of “Otello” at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday’s 7 p.m. program of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Requiem” and music by Samuel Barber (featuring “Otello’s” Desdemona, soprano Joyce El-Khoury) and Sunday’s 3 p.m. matinee of “The Girl of the Golden West.” (Click on the links above to see reviews of the performances in The Washington Post, or here for a recent report on Castleton’s reorganization and successes since last season.)
