Sergei Prokofiev in Metropolitan Opera House, Lincoln Centre, New York City - 21 February, 1919, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 21 February 1919, page 391:

In the evening I went to the Metropolitan to hear a boring Prophète. Rubinstein extracted me and took me into his box with Besanzoni, his girl-friend and New York's newest star mezzo-soprano.
