Sigmund Romberg (1887-1951) was a composer known for his many operettas, including The Student Prince and New Moon. His collaborators include lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II.


In episode 517 of The Muppet Show , Statler and Waldorf are appalled when Geri and the Atrics play rock and roll, since they were expecting Sigmund Romberg tunes.
