Storyboard Text

  • Wow she is beautiful.
  • A musician named Orpheus goes on a stroll alone in the woods where he meets a beautiful dryad named Eurydice.
  • Orpheus takes her back to the castle where they are married and now Eurydice helps him run the palace.
  • On one condition...
  • I want my wife back!
  • Eurydice finds herself stressed and goes for a stroll in the woods where she falls asleep and is bitten by a magical and poisonous snake.   She lays there all night before Orpheus sends out a search party and finds her dead body.
  • Orpheus decides to go to the underworld where he will retrieve eurydice and bring her back with him.   He makes his way through the underworld where he encounters things like cerberus, hades guard dog.
  • He finally reaches persephone, hades wife, and begs for Eurydice.   Persephone says he can have her back on one condition.  He must travel back out of the underworld with Eurydice behind him and he cant look back and see her until they both reach the light of day.
  • Eurydice excitedly makes it out of the cave and looks back to find his love.   He then realizes that she had not made it out of the cave yet when he looked at her.   He tried to look away but it was too late, Eurydice was taken back the underworld where she was never seen again.
