Read more about the opera Faust

Within a decade of its premiere, Faust was already firmly established as a popular favourite suitable for a Saturday night. On such occasions, the masses of students assembled in the gallery traditionally sang a large repertoire of popular songs in the half-hour before the performance and during the intervals. It also quickly became accepted that in those communities with some form of military base the forces on stage might be suitably augmented. Thus the band of the Dundee Artillery Volunteers was here made available to beef up the orchestra for the Soldiers' Chorus.
