The fourth of Mozart's operas to make it into the chart. Up 12 places

This chaotic comedy of deception ends up with a moral about forgiveness. Although the play by Beaumarchais on which The Marriage of Figaro is based was at first banned in Vienna because of its satire of the aristocracy, the opera became one of Mozart's most successful works. It features the aria 'Voi che sapete' and other timeless tunes.

Toronto-based Opera Atelier's 2010 production.
