Arthur Stace found the Lord when he heard the reverend's words 'Eternity, Eternity, I wish that I could sound or shout that word to everyone in the streets of Sydney.' For almost 40 years, ex-alcoholic Stace roamed Sydney writing 'eternity' in perfect copperplate script on the city's pavements. In 2003, Australian composer Jonathan Mills and novelist and poet Dorothy Porter combined to create an opera based on Stace's life. Julian Temple, director of music-related films such as The Filth & the Fury and Absolute Beginners, has joined this creative team to film the opera live on Stace's Sydney streets. With Australian baritone Grant Doyle as Stace, Sydney songstress Christa Hughes as his sister Myrtle, and a 25-piece orchestra conducted by rising star Stuart Stratford, Temple builds a sound-and-image-scape of Sydney unlike anything you've seen or heard before.
