"...The Geisha (1896) achieved enormous success not only in Britain but throughout Europe, where its popularity exceeded that of any other British operetta.... [Jones'] unassuming nature was reflected in his works, particularly The Geisha, which is full of charming numbers, its opening chorus in particular being worthy of Sullivan."
