Sergei Prokofiev - 27 January, 1916

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 27 January 1916, page 77:

Babulenka, and then to the Mariinsky Theatre for the general rehearsal of The Snowstorm, a deadly effusion of maudlin anguish by a composer of exalted rank, which induced a level of boredom so profound that it failed even to provoke indignation.
