Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 8 February, 1916

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 8 February 1916, page 85:

I hardly did anything on The Gambler, and went to the general rehearsal of the student production of The Tsar's Bride. It was last done five years ago, in my time, and although I did not conduct any of the performances myself I was involved in the production. Dranishnikov has really come on, and conducted outstandingly well.
