"Kálmán’s most successful and typical works are those in which the Viennese waltz is mixed with the Hungarian popular style. His major international operetta successes all had Hungarian settings, while other works had sub-plots with opportunities for music in the Hungarian manner. Even in his last work, set on a ranch in Arizona, the heroine is a Hungarian. Thus he was able to add to his fund of melody an almost obsessive taste for Hungarian popular rhythms, set off by a penchant for opulent orchestral colouring and instrumental counterpoint." Andrew Lamb in Grove Dictionary of Opera.
