Kanye West announces Nebuchadnezzar opera

The Chicago star took to twitter to confirm more bizarre news.

Following the release of Kanye West’s ninth studio album ‘Jesus Is King’, the rapper has shared news on social media of his first opera, ‘Nebuchadnezzar’.

Kanye had mentioned ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ in his chat on Zane Lowe’s beats 1 show around the release of ‘Jesus Is King’, noting “[God] is saying, Let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character—Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this”.

The opera is directed by Vanessa Beecroft and will take place at the Hollywood Bowl on November 24. The event will feature music from Kanye’s Sunday Service performers and Peter Colins.
