Story of Orpheus

STORY OF ORPHEUS
In Greek mythology, Orpheus was a musician and poet who could calm wild beasts and coax rocks and trees to dance with the beauty of his songs. His wife, Eurydice, was killed by the bite of a serpent. Orpheus, stricken with grief, descended into Underworld in search of her, where his music charmed Hades, the lord of Underworld.
