Bob herceg

Bob herceg (Prince Bob) is a 1902 three act operetta by Hungarian composer JenÅ‘ 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.
