In Act Two we go from a totally rousing full-out gospel number to a bizarre visit from Pan and many other creatures of the forest and mythology – they are not converging at Pan’s behest in order to draft a piece of legislation.
In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.
