AND TALES FROM GREEK MYTHOLOGY

Orpheus charmed the crowds, regaled them with music and tales of adventure. All who heard were smitten and enthralled. He fell in love. A wood nymph and daughter of Apollo, she was all that he ever wanted. She died and the tale should end there, but end it did not. He went to the Underworld, tried to retreive his beloved back from the dead. He was granted his wish but only if he walked in front of her and never looked back to see her face. He could not bear it. Suddenly he turned and instantly she disappeared once more into the underworld. What a bummer...
