"Orpheus was the greatest poet who ever lived. His music was so beautiful that when he played, rivers would stop flowing, winds would stop blowing, and the skies would open up so his wondrous melodies could be heard by the gods in heaven. One day, his wife, Eurydice, was bitten to death by vipers. Overcome with grief, Orpheus played heartbreaking songs on his lyre. The gods were moved, and so advised Orpheus to travel to the land of the dead and sing his songs to Hades to bargain for his wife. So it was that Hades’ heart was softened, and he allowed Eurydice to leave on one condition - that Orpheus would walk in front and never look back."
