Maria Baranovskaya et al. in Los Angeles - 12 January, 1921, in the afternoon

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 12 January 1921, page 577:

I then went home, and not long after Baranovskaya arrived to look at Three Oranges. Some of the text of the libretto I read to her, for some of it I explained the context, and played the music. As someone familiar with commedia dell'arte and the ideas of Gozzi and Meyerhold, Baranovskaya identified strongly with the opera and was terribly excited by it. Her eyes sparkled and her cheeks flushed.
