Storyboard Text

  • The hero, Orpheus is madly in love with a nymph named Eurydice. However, on their wedding day Eurydice is bitten by a snake and is instantly killed.
  • Orpheus goes to the underworld where Eurydice is, and pleads to Hades to let her go. Hades orders Orpheus to leave the underworld, but he also says that Eurydice may or may not follow him home unless he tries looks back at her.
  • Orpheus eventually looks back and his one true love disappeared back to the underworld. He was in so much grief, that it made other girls jealous that they could never be loved by him. He was later killed by three female demons. Orpheus and Eurydice now walk together in the underworld forever. 
  • The king of Crete, Minos, locked up Daedalus, the designer of his labyrinth for helping a man named Theseus escape from the maze. Daedalus and his son Icarus eventually escape the tower, and made wings out of wax and feathers to fly over the ocean to safety. 
  • Since the wings are made out of wax, they cannot fly too close to the water or too close to the sun, otherwise their wings will be ruined and they will plunge into the ocean. Icarus however, does not listen to his father and he flies too close to the sun. 
  • After Icarus's wings start to melt, he calls for his father but it's too late, he has already fallen into the water, and has drowned. Daedalus picks him up from the ocean but he could not save him because is already dead. He goes to an island to bury his son and calls it Icaria in memory of him.
