Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 15 March, 1914, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 15 March 1914, page 623:

In the evening I attended the premiere. Meeting Belokurova, I sat next to her, an enjoyable adjunct to listening closely to Figaro and studying Tcherepnin's gestures. Belokurochka was extremely nice and cheered me up, putting me in an excellent mood. As for Figaro, the performance went smoothly, one could even say well.
