This reseach deals about the Orfeu's soundtrack including music, songs, sound design and sound edition from the movies Black Orpheus, directed by Marcel Camus (1959), and Orfeu, directed by Cacá Diegues (1999), likewise a creative elements and their relationships the sound and film language as a whole. The Orfeu's musical universe is so great that, to understand the soundtracks of the movies it's necessary visit and know the history of musical dramaturgy, in what many manifestations of the myth are found. The objective is to make an image and sound decupage by means of an analysis of the soundtrack as a narrative film resource. There'll be analysed too the director's strategies to make the transcription of the Orpheu's myth using the conventions of the film's language. The start point is the seminal work of Vinicius de Moraes - Orfeu da Conceição - that influences bossa nova and the related films. These analysis will include, either, the way music is used to articulate the dramaturgy in those movies, and the importance of the cinematografic's musical thought.
