Netrebko, nearing milestone, is thinking menus

The hottest soprano on record is going to be 40 on Sunday and is contemplating her future.

Anna was serious when she talked earlier this summer about opening a restaurant in Vienna. Friends tell me she’s bored with opera hype and wants a challenge. She’s happier talking menus than roles, barely able to suppress a yawn while playing the online agony aunt – as required by her record company. I suspect she could do with a break – six months of media silence to celebrate her big birthday.

And maybe a new white fur for the winter.
