About a week ago, as the Castleton Festival moved toward its last days of this summer’s season, Nina and Colby May hosted a barbecue at their house near Sperryville for the cast and crew of the annual music and opera fest. (Filmmaker Nina May is on the festival’s board of directors.) Some 300 talented attendees — musicians, singers, crew members — arrived for the spirited gathering, including (from left) Paul Müller, executive director of the Munich Philharmonic; Giandomenico Vaccari, “Girl of the Golden West” stage director; Colby May; Dietlinde Maazel; Maestro Lorin Maazel; and Nina May.
