from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 226:

…This is not the first time I have been in Sverdlovsk, but every visit gives me new pleasure. Sverdlovsk is a great cultural centre, with a good symphony orchestra, excellent conductors, an opera house and one of the best theatres of musical comedy in the country.
