Beauty is eternal, it never dies, but can change its form. The harmony of Eurydice’s body echoes forever in the instrument and the Orpheus’ song. She announces the harmony of a new world.
Eurydice’s ultimate gesture of love for Orpheus is this metamorphosis of her body into a violoncello to enable him to continue his song. The pain of Eurydice’s loss gives the song of Orpheus supernatural strains that tame wild beasts, soften the Gods, and touch the soul of every human being. It’s a message of consolation and hope: A loss which we consider irreplaceable, can generate new strength in us.
