Sergei Prokofiev in Chicago - 30 December, 1919, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 30 December 1919, page 454:

In the evening I went to hear three new operas by Puccini. The music is pretty empty, sometimes pleasant, sometimes bad, but the way he uses the stage is masterly, although not irreproachably so. However this may be, there were things to enjoy in the evening, unlike yesterday's ballet.*
