Read more about the opera Phoebus and Pan

Phoebus and Pan was received with enthusiasm as a brief entertainment to follow after performances of La bohème. It was an adaptation of Bach by the young Eugene Goossens and benefited from beautiful designs in French eighteenth century pastoral mode. Frank Mullings revealed an unsuspected talent for comedy, and several of the performers, especially Pan, also had to show a talent for dance.

Details are from a review in the Scotsman on 6 November 1918.
