Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - in the beginning of the 1900's
from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 180:
I met Vsevolod Meyerhold, who was staging Mayakovsky's The Bed-Bug, and wrote music for the play. Meyerhold was an outstanding musical producer. His production of The Queen of Spade was, in my opinion, a stupendous operatic achievement, and I should like to see this production revived. I have vivid memories of Meyerhold's production of Lermontov's The Masked Ball with music by Glazunov.
