The marriage of Orpheus, the greatest of all poets and musicians, to Eurydice, a wood nymph, was heralded as the perfect union. Anyone could tell the couple was deeply in love. So when their wedding ceremony ended in Eurydice's untimely death, Orpheus had no choice but to venture into the underworld to try to reclaim his lost love. Brendan Pelsue shares the tragic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Lesson by Brendan Pelsue, animation by Anton Bogaty.

Did Hades set the rule arbitrarily? And why couldn't Ophius just ask her if she was there? And did the tree of the nymph die while she left? Would she have gotten another one if she had been able to leave?
