This was the first composition that did not try to imitate European operetta. It was also the first work in which changes to the score could've made without express permission of the composer. The music took primacy in this work. Herbert was a cellist. He moved to New York with his wife when she was hired at the Met. He played cello in the Met orchestra.

There's more but this piece made a complete break with works  that came before.
It has a distinctly American flavor in the tunes, and the elegance imparted by a great musician
