Si colmi il calice di vino eletto,  Lady Macbeth's aria from Macbeth

Si colmi il calice di vino eletto;	Fill your cups of chosen wine;
Nasca il diletto, muoia il dolor.	Let pleasure rise, let sorrow die.
Da noi s'involino gli odi e gli sdegni,	Let hatred and disdain be far from us,
Folleggi e regni qui solo amor...	let only love reign and frolic...
Gustiamo il balsamo d'ogni ferita,	Let us taste the balm of each wound,
Che nuova vita ridona al cor		that gives a new life to our hearts.
Cacciam le torbide cure dal petto;	Let us drive the dark cares out of each breast;
Nasca il diletto muoia il dolor.	let pleasure rise, let sorrow die.
