Sergei Prokofiev in Paris - 21 February, 1925, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 21 February 1925, page 140:

Koshetz, a packed hall, flushed with excitement, flowers. In 'There Are Other Planets' she went wrong, the first time she has done so. Generally it was very good, but she dragged out the song: it needs less bel canto and to get on with the story.
