Sergei Prokofiev in Paris - 2 April, 1924

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 2 April 1924, page 38:

I went to a general rehearsal by the Romantic Ballet, which is headed by Romanov,* the same who was going to stage Ala and Lolli had that ballet ever come to fruition. But I did not like their production and Metzl's music was unbearable.
