Le Nozze Di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro)
(1786) This comic opera was banned at some European courts due to the scandalous behavior of its characters. Chiefly offensive to royal audiences was the depiction of an aristocrat (The Count) as morally corrupt. Also objectionable was the notion that Figaro, a mere servant, might be so much cleverer than his entitled master.
