This is a story from the More Tales from the Greek Legends collection.
Bellerophon and the winged horse Pegasus launch into the blue sky in search of the dreaded three-headed Chimera, but will success go to the hero's head? Orpheus, devastated by the death of his wife, Eurydice, dares the dangers of the kingdom of the dead in an attempt to bring her back to life. Echo loves Narcissus but he only loves himself: a story that can only end in sadness. These and other colourful legends from Ancient Greece are retold in lively form by Benjamin Soames, with classical music providing further excitement.
Narrator Benjamin Soames imbues Edward Ferrie’s retelling of this classic Greek myth with an evocative grandiosity befitting of the subject matter in this tale of the wrath the hunter Actaeon incurs at the hands of Artemis, the goddess of the wilderness, after he glimpses her nude body while she bathes in an outdoor grotto with her nymphs.
Fans of Greek mythology will be mesmerized by Soames’ spirited performance, particularly his vivid depiction of the intense, unsparing climax.
