The story follows the beautiful
Greek legend. Eurydice, who has been bitten by a serpent. is dead, and her husband, Orpheus, is inconsolable, and weeps at her tomb. The God of Love, Amor, takes pity on the singer, and tells him that ho may descend into Hades and seek the shade of Eurydice in Pluto's dark kingdom; but there is a condition attached. Orpheus, if he would bring his bride back to the upper regions again, must return to earth without looking upon her face. Orpheus wins admission through the gates of Hades. He finds Eurydice and she follows him out of the Valley ; but as they near the land of the living, he looks back. Eurydice falls dead. Orpheus is about to kill himself when the God Amor intervenes and brings Eurydice to life again.
