Isaak Glikman et al. in Russia - the 1900's

from Story of a Friendship. The letters of Dmitry Shostakovich to Isaak Glikman with a commentary by Isaak Glikman- 1941-1975, page 193:

From speaking about Meyerhold, Shostakovich turned to Prokofiev. He, of course, had lived an entirely different life, but had also endured much, not least over the staging of 'Romeo and Juliet' at the Maryinsky Theatre. We recalled our pre-war attendance together at a rehearsal of the ballet not long before the première, and how impressed we had been by the magnificent music.
