That's the story that has appeared constantly in stories, legends, ballets, operas, and symphonic poems for the last 500 years, from Sir Orfeo in Middle English to Black Orpheus in Brazilian Portuguese.
Even gay artists, like Tennessee Williams, go with the heteronormative myth. Orpheus Descending is about a man with a guitar and a muscular physique who invades a seedy Southern town, falls in love with an older woman, and...well, you get the idea.
But Eurydice is actually a later addition. In the earlier myths, Orpheus was gay.
He only liked boys (young men). In fact, he introduced the practice of same-sex love to the Thracians.
Therefore he refused the Bacchantes, who tore him to pieces in a jealous rage.
