Sergei Prokofiev in Theatre Astruc, Paris - early June, 1913, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 3-8 June 1913, page 430:

On the third evening* I saw the staged version of Rimsky-Korsakov's Sheherezade: quite successful, very gorgeous and exotic, like the music. What happens on stage is in full accordance with the score, with the exception of the very end.
