Orpheus is a musician, the personification of deep, archaic amazement at the power of sound. His music enchants not just people, but animals, trees, even stones. When he sings and plays, the wind ceases to blow. Euridice is his beloved. And when she dies, the depths of Orpheus’ lamentations know no bounds: they even soften the hearts of the gods. They in turn give in to his entreaties, but in the form of a test: if Orpheus wants Euridice back, he must convince the guardians of Hades to give her back. Furthermore, he must lead her back to the land of the living – in complete silence, and without turning back to look at her. It is an act of self-discipline. But in the maze of Hades, he gives into Euridice, who no longer believes he loves her.... find out the rest yourselves... :)
