Transcript of Orpheus and Eurydice Prezi

Orpheus and Eurydice Orpheus (The main character who
loves Eurydice and plays the lyre.) Eurydice (A maiden nymph who
loves Orpheus and later dies.) Hades (The God of the Underworld
and death who fools Orpheus; boss.) Ferryman -Charon- (The ferryman of Hades that allows the living human, Orpheus, to pass.) Cerberus (The 3-headed guard dog that guards the gate to the land of Hades.) Orpheus helps Jason and the Argonauts on their quest for the
Golden Fleece, but all he does is save them from the Sirens. After that adventure, he fell in love with Eurydice and eventually, they got married. I just don't understand the picture though... Unfortunately, Eurydice gets stung by something and dies, while Orpheus sets out to the Underworld to get her back. Hades falls for Orpheus' music and allows him to leave with Eurydice on the condition that he not look at her before reaching the land of the living. Curious, he looks and Eurydice disappears; he decides to die to be reunited with Eurydice. Hades is known for setting conditions on requests;
this seems to be good, but in reality, Hades wins. Orpheus ended up dying by his choice while
Hades' plan of having Orpheus dead came true.
