Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 14 December, 1914, in the afternoon

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 14 December 1914, page 796:

Went to hear the matinee performance of Rusalka, but it is definitely an uninteresting opera to hear twice. There were not many people I knew there and even fewer I found attractive, so I was rather bored.
