The late Patric Standford may have written these short pieces deliberately to provoke our feedback. If so, his success is reflected in the rich range of readers' comments appearing at the foot of most of the pages.
Bob herceg (Prince Bob) is a 1902 three act operetta by Hungarian composer Jenő Huszka and librettists Ferenc Martos and Károly Bakonyi. The story concerns a British prince who meets and eventually marries a poor girl, and also becomes king.
The work was first performed on 20 December 1902 in Budapest, and is considered to be Huszka's first critical success. László Kalmár made a film version in 1941, and there was also a TV production of the operetta in 1972.
