Helen Mirren at the BlackCreek Summer Music

Helen Mirren's topping Google Trends in both blogs and news websites for several reasons, but a very interesting one is the reaction to her blast that she, in her view, does not have a great body.

Maestro Maazel conducts the Castleton Festival Orchestra and the women’s voices of the Castleton Festival Chorus in a wondrous romantic program of music inspired by Shakespeare: three excerpts from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, and Mendelssohn’s Incidental Music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, highlighted by spoken performances of Shakespeare verses from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by two incomparable stars of both stage and motion pictures: the extraordinary pair of Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons
