Sergei Prokofiev in Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London - between 9 June, 1914 and 7 July, 1914

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 9 June - 7 July, page 707:

In the time elapsing between these evenings I went often to the theatre where I could make use of one of the four seats in row 7 that were reserved for Diaghilev. On this occasion Petrushka afforded me greater pleasure than last year in Paris, and I could state without any qualification that I liked it. Unfortunately The Rite of Spring was not in the repertoire for this season.
