When Eurydice died Orpheus played such sad songs and sang so mournfully that all the nymphs and gods wept. On their advice, Orpheus traveled to the underworld and by his music softened the hearts of Hades and Persephone.

What was the story of Orpheus and Eurydice?

The story of Orpheus and Eurydice is that Orpheus had a girlfriend named Eurydice. On their wedding day, Eurydice stepped on a snake and died, leaving Orpheus very depressed. Orpheus decided to go down to the Underworld and bring back Eurydice's spirit. Once down there, he played his lyre so beautifully that Hades and Persephone were so moved that they let him bring her ghost back on one condition: to never turn back at the ghost. However, as they were leaving the Underworld, Orpheus looked back to see if Eurydice had made it out as well, but she was still in the Underworld as this was happening, so she was lost this time, forever.
