Kanye West To Hold His First Ever Opera

Published

on

International act, Kanye West, has been on a different path for a little while now and definitely set to take his music to new heights with the announcement of his first opera, Nebuchadnezzar.

The event has been scheduled to take place on November 24 and directed by previous collaborator, Vanessa Beecroft.

He posted artwork for the opera with the powerful Babylonian monarch on front. The artwork was designed by Nick Knight.

As Pitchfork points out, Kanye has mentioned Nebuchadnezzar before. “[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,” he told Zane Lowe during an interview on Apple Music’s Beats 1. He further said:

“I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’—I had a guy dressed as Jesus.”

“And now—I am unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time. It’s not even a question at this point,” West said in the interview.

“It’s just a fact. For the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke to all liberals. Like, ‘Nooo, not Kanye!”
