Orpheus, the best player of the lyre who ever lived, was in love with Eurydice, the most astounding and beautiful woman. One day she was bitten by a snake, and died. Orpheus’ music on the lyre was so sad he even moved Hades, the god of the underworld…
Soft, Calm, and yet Eloquent!
He was given a second chance. He would be allowed as the first living man to enter the underworld and to leave it again. And Eurydice would leave with him, and be his wife again in the living world, but under one condition: he was not to turn around and look at her until he was out in the light of the upper world.
So Orpheus walks the underworld, and he is very tempted to turn around to see Eurydice. But he masters himself. But then, already seeing the light of the upper world in front of his eyes, he is worried because he cannot hear her footsteps. He thinks the gods might have fooled him, and he turns around.
There is Eurydice behind him, but as a shadow, which is why he couldn’t hear her steps. The moment he saw her, she began moving away from him, sinking back into the underworld, now lost and dead forever.
Orpheus exits alone into the world of the living and he only desires death because only then he could be with Eurydice again. Wild animals tear him apart, but the muses keep his head alive to sing the most beautiful songs until the end of days.
