Psyche travels the world in search of her lover, Cupid, who left her to punish her for breaking her vows. Contrary to the instructions of her invisible husband, she disobeys her sisters and, thinking Cupid a monster, resolves to cut off his head with a razor. But a daring lamp illuminates the secrets of the bed, and Psyche sees Cupid, the god of love, resting peacefully on his bed.

Composition "White"

Cupid, who left Psyche, spends time at the mansion of his mother. Angry and annoyed, his mother threatens to take away his bow and arrow — “the great god's kind-hearted weapon,” and swears she will adopt a slave and give him all this weaponry. The reason for the family quarrel is the secret marriage of the son with a mortal woman, Psyche. Cupid's mother does not wish to tolerate her hated daughter-in-law, and she sends her to the kingdom of the dead instead.

May 1, 7 p.m.
The Golden Ass. The Open-circuited Workspace
Composition "City"
A webcast will be available till May 2, 7 p.m.

Lucius appears for the first time in the magical city of Thessaly. He brings a letter for his uncle Milo, one of the city's most influential people. He is met on the threshold by the seductive servant Fotida who escorts Lucius to the guest room. After a warm welcome, Lucius intends to go to the baths, but first goes to the market to get dinner, and there he meets his old friend Pythia, with whom he studied in Athens. He also meets his aunt Byrhhena at the market, who tells him about the city and invites him to a feast.
