The bit where she actually climbs on the table has been edited out, but here she is, among the dirty plates.


The waiting staff don’t seem too pleased.

One of the boring men has been identified as Wolfgang Schäuble, president of the German parliament.


  • Paolo says:

    Very funny but without class as usual.

  • Meal says:

    I have to admit that I find this post inappropriate. 1. There have been women around, too. 2. Whatever you think about Schäuble and his political ideas, he is everything but boring. This might be true for many of the attendees.

  • sam says:

    I want to see the video of how she managed to climb onto that table with that skirt of hers.

    Good thing they make sturdy tables in Germany. Most catered affairs like this, it’s small folding table with a big piece of board perched on top.

    • John Borstlap says:

      In Germany, stability on every occasion is priority, even under the high heels of opera divas.

  • Caravaggio says:

    No Class is right

  • Eric says:

    A vulgar singer in every possible way, but there’s no arguing with her fans.

  • Nightowl says:

    Looks like they didn’t use collapsible tables for this event.

  • Barry Guerrero says:

    Oh please, get over yourselves. There’s nothing inappropriate going on here. Nothing salacious. If you want to see a woman on a piano in a short dress, you can go to Google images and see millions of them. If you don’t care for Netrebko, fine, but don’t be catty about it. It’s really a sort of ‘in your dreams’ scenario.

  • JPAULO says:

    The class or lack of I will leave up to others, but the actual singing is pretty ghastly. She doesn’t always sound like this does she? Warble you could drive a truck through. Voice sounds like a “very mature” church choir singer. Maybe it’s just the recording.

  • Martain Smith says:

    She definitely missed her vocation!

  • diego439 says:

    cheap like hell.
    disgusting but not surprising to

    I hope her strict father
    “LIKE” it.
