Dmitri Shostakovich in Budapest - 1966

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 270:

I flew into the Hungarian capital some days before the premiere of Katerina Izmailova, and greatly enjoyed being at the rehearsals and hearing the magnificent singers and orchestra. The opera was produced by L. Mikhailov and N. Kemarskaya, and was given a very warm reception by the Budapest press and public.
