The Orfeo Experience

The Orfeo Experience

Having witnessed the beautiful wedding of Orfeo and Euridice, you and all the other guests are enjoying delicious food, sparkling wine and wonderful orchestral music when suddenly the news filters through that Euridice has been bitten by a snake and tragically died.
