Rap, gospel, politics, fashion, a documentary — Kanye West has followed many pursuits in his eclectic career, and he’s about to add one more project to the mix. The rapper announced on Sunday that he plans to premiere his first opera, Nebuchadnezzar: A Kanye West Opera, in exactly one week on Nov. 24.
West tweeted an image of the invitation to the opera, which is titled after a king of Babylon mentioned in the Book of Daniel. The invitation says the opera will be directed by performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, feature “music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song,” and take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
