Ned Rorem in Venice - September, 1954

from The Paris Diary: Hyères and Italy 1954 and 1955, page 162:

In the evening a dress rehearsal of Britten's new opera The Turn of the Screw which I liked immensely, and even if it's not a masterpiece it's the piece of a master which Sauguet's new opera in July was not.
