Mozart's best music: where to start
2. The Marriage of Figaro
Lively, cheeky, funny – Mozart had a sense of humour, and you can hear it from the word go in this cheerful opera. It’s a great love-story, with a few cases of mistaken identity, trickery, and practical jokes thrown in for good measure. Musical highlights include the ‘Sull’aria’ duet, and the soprano aria ‘Porgi, amor’.
