Libiamo nei lieti calici, from La traviata Verdi Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
"Let's drink from the joyful cup" is a famous duet with chorus from Verdi's La traviata, one of the best-known opera melodies and a popular performance choice (as is this opera itself) for many great tenors. The song is a brindisi, a lively song that encourages the drinking of wine or other alcoholic beverages. The duet is performed in the first act of the opera, during a late-night party at Violetta Valéry's house. It is sung by Violetta and Alfredo Germont, a young man who is in love with her. Alfredo is convinced by his friend Gastone and by Violetta to show off his voice. He begins this drinking song, later joined by Violetta and the rest of the company. Verdi's opera "La Traviata" was first performed in Venice in 1853. The action occurs in Paris and its suburbs about 1700. The first act shows the salon of the notorious courtesan, Violetta. In the midst of a gay party Alfredo is presented to Violetta as one of her admirers. At her request he sings her this jolly drinking song. "Libbiamo nei lieti calici". The Italian translates roughly to "Let's sip from the happy goblets"
