Dmitri Shostakovich in Moscow
from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 201:
I am pleased that the Operetta Theatre has a magnificent choir and orchestra, and a talented young company well-versed in music. It was easy and pleasant to work with them … The show turned out jolly and gay, just as I wanted it.
