Beth Britten et al. in Leicester Square - 21 July, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 145:

After dinner Beth & I (getting 2 10/6 tickets - Because of Farrar prize just won) go to Alhambra for Ballet.* See Petrouchka, that marvel, with Woisekovsky, Riabouchinska, & Lichene. The perf. was worthy of the Ballet. Jeux D'Enfants (Bizet), & Cottillon (Charbrier tho' good, were rather an anti-climax after the other.*
