Sergei Prokofiev in Metropolitan Opera House, Lincoln Center, New York City - late January, 1921

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 23 January - 3 February 1921, page 585:

Koshetz was ecstatic both at my success and her invitation, was beside herself with nerves, and two days later accompanied me to see Garden*. She sang wonderfully, enchanted Garden and was immediately engaged for the role of Fata Morgana, and probably for other roles besides. Two miracles were thus achieved in the space of three days.
