Synopsis

The Apollonian singer Orpheus has lost his wife Eurydice as the result of a poisonous snake bite. Orpheus refuses to accept the fate and intends to go into the Underworld to look for Eurydice. Amor appears to him and announces that Jupiter decided: the singer will be allowed to descend into the Underworld. If he succeeds in appeasing the Furies, Eurydice will be returned to him. However, he must not look at Eurydice before they have crossed the Styx. With a heart-rending song of lamentation in which he pleads for pity, Orpheus succeeds in pacifying the Furies. He finds Eurydice and  takes her with him on the way back to the world of the living. Troubled by Orpheus’s refusal to look at her, Eurydice begins to doubt that it really is her husband whom she is following. She pressures him with questions and is starting to doubt his love. In an agony of despair Orpheus disobeys the command of the gods and turns to Eurydice who collapses, dead, in his arms. Shamed by the depth of this love, Amor once again brings Eurydice back to life.
