Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is unquestionably one of the greatest masterpieces of comedy with music. Mozart's musical characterizations are ingenious, and his melodies are enormously faithful to character and situation. All of his music possesses a charm, wit, gaiety, perfection of form, and utter spontaneity. Moreover, the opera ingeniously captures the spirit of Beaumarchais's humorous play.
