Orpheus, the mythical singer whose music has magic powers, is called upon to return to the Underworld. On this perilous journey, he is accompanied by his trusty Harp. Their mission: to use the power of song to rescue the world's endangered species from the sinister clutches of Pluto and Persephone. Told through sparkling melody and humor, this adaptation of an age-old story illustrates the universal importance of seeking harmony among living creatures and preserving our fragile environment.
