Eurydice is one lucky lady—she's the wife of Orpheus, the first ever rock star. Tragically, though, the lovely nymph (dryad) died not long after the happy couple got hitched, when she was bit on the ankle by a snake. Orpheus totally freaked out when his wife died: he played music so sad and beautiful that the gods encouraged him to go to the Underworld and bring his wife back. And that he did—or tried, at least. He charmed Hades and Persephone with his music, and Hades agreed that the bard could take his wife back to the land of the living as long he walked out of the Underworld without looking back. The lovebirds almost made it out, but just as they were about to step into the sunlight, Orpheus looked back, and Eurydice vanished forever into the dark Underworld.
