In Macbeth: «Si colmi il calice del vino eletto; nasca il diletto, muoia il dolor», to which all the guests respond «cacciam le torbide cure dal petto, nasca il diletto, muoia il dolor».
A completely different setting for &lauqo;Libiamo, libiamo ne’ lieti calici» in La Traviata by Verdi, and to wine Verdi has dedicated alsso a song: "Brindisi", which shows how wine is able to make everything more beautiful and serene: «Mescetemi il vino! Tu solo bicchiere/ tra grandi terreni non sei menzognero/ tu vita dei sensi, letizia del cor».
