Storyboard Text

  • Eurydice, Orpheus' true love, gets bitten by a deadly snake at their wedding, and sadly dies.
  • Orpheus journeys into the underworld to get Eurydice back. He uses his musical talent to make his way through all of the obstacles. Hades allows Eurydice the passageway back to earth as long as Orpheus doesn't look back to see if she's there. 
  • Orpheus starts making his way up to earth, and right when he is about to reach the top, he looks back and sees his true love, Eurydice. He didn't follow the rules and Eurydice was sent back down to the underworld. Orpheus died soon after. He was murdered by the women of Thrace, because they were mad at the God Dionysus for not making Orpheus love them. 
  • King Minos locks the designer of his labyrinth, Daedalus , in a tower for letting someone escape the great maze. He escapes the tower with his son, Icarus, and needs to find a way off of the island. The sea is blocked by ships that are owned by Minos, so Daedalus decides to find out a way to fly off of the island. 
  • Daedalus tells his son to collect as many feathers as he can, so that they can make wings. He uses wax and feathers to attempt wings. Daedalus successfully makes the wings, and he then teaches Icarus how to fly. He warns Icarus not to fly to high, because the wax will melt from the sun, and not to low because the moisture will damage the feathers.
  • Icarus starts to get excited and flies way to high. Soon the wax on his wings start to melt, and he starts falling toward the sea. Icarus hits the water with a big "Splash!" and it was to late for Daedalus to save his son. He buried Icarus at an island now named Icaria (after his son). Daedalus then flied to Sicily where he gave the god, Apollo, the wings that both saved and killed.
