Orpheus and Eurydice (1984), 6min

Orpheus and Eurydice, Lesley Keen (SCO)

This animated work is a retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in the style of a Greek vase. When his wife Eurydice dies, Orpheus descends into Hell and by charming the Gods of the Underworld with his singing wins Eurydice back, only to lose her again at the threshold of the Overworld.
