This tale is two parts of a classic Greek myths linked together and now set in modern times. The two stories follow the different paths of eternal love. The first part is the tale of the songwriter Orpheus where he meets and falls in love with his one-true-love Eurydice and they bask in the warmth of love and song. The second part is where Eurydice is tempted to travel to Hadestown, which is run by King Hades and his wife Persephone, in search of fame and fortune, but she arrives to find a post-apocalyptic world.
