Orpheus married the nymph Eurydice, but she died from a snake bite.
In his grief, Orpheus descended to Hades to find her. There his music
so charmed Pluto, the king of the underworld, that Pluto promised to
let Orpheus to lead his wife back to his world -on one condition:
should he look back at her, she would be lost to him. Just as they
reached the earth, Orpheus turned to see if she was following him,
whereupon she vanished forever.
This performance was a collaboration between children (Leith Walk Primary, Forth View Primary and Craigroyston Primary) and adults who shared ideas and imagination hoping to find the spirit of Orpheus in the garden at night.
