"[Herbert] was the most talented and successful American operetta composer and important also as an advocate of copyright and performance-rights protection for composers... [He] preferred to compose for trained singers rather than for comedians who sang, and the operettas he wrote for stars like Alice Nielson (The Fortune Teller), Fritzi Scheff (Mlle Modiste) or Emma Trentini (Naughty Marietta) placed great demands on the chorus and orchestra as well as the principals."
