In some cases, the lyrics have a direct correlation to the story, but in others the only real link is the tone.And then there are the instrumental pieces.In my head it went something like this -
Track 1: Euridice, bitten by a serpent, goes tumbling down to Hades.
Tracks 2-3: Orpheus realizes his loss and gradually becomes delirious with grief.
Track 4: He resolves to descend to Hades and win back his love.
Track 5: Descent into Hades.
Track 6: Hades and Persephone grant Orpheus an audience.
Track 7: Orpheus walks among the shades of the dead, seeking Euridice.
Track 8: Together they begin the ascent to the world of the living.
Track 9: Orpheus looks back, and loses Euridice.
Tracks 10-11: Orpheus returns to the world of the living alone.
Tracks 12-13: Orpheus plays music for the frenzied dancing of the Bacchae.
Track 14: He cannot keep his grief over Euridice out of his music.
Track 15: The Bacchae demand a livelier tune,
Track 16: but Orpheus can play only songs of loss and lamentation.
Track 17: Furious, the Bacchae fall upon him and tear him to pieces.
Track 18: Finally free, he drifts on the surface of the water, singing.

Wow. Very nice. Shows a lot of thought. I'm not familiar with some of these tracks, but I'm curious to see how this sounds.
