  • Kanye West Teases Opera, Dr. Dre Collaboration

Kanye West is staging his first ever opera, Nebuchadnezzar, next weekend. The event will take place next week (11/24) at the Hollywood Bowl.

Titled "A Kanye West Opera", the plaque also states that the show is directed by Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, with music from Kanye's Sunday Service, Peter Collins and Infinities Song.

West shared a photo of a gold-plated invitation to the event, apparently designed by Nick Knight and featuring an image of the ancient Babylonian king, who features heavily in the Bible. Naturally, there are a number of parallels between Nebuchadnezzar and West - from delusions of power to falls from grace to eventually coming out of everything a stronger believer in God.

The Biblical Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon circa 605 BC, is known in the Book of Jeremiah as "destroyer of nations". "The Grammy-winning artist referenced the figure to Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 in an interview recently, saying, "[God] is saying, let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character. "I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, "I'm a God"- I had a guy dressed as Jesus", he said.

Ahead of his foray into the opera world, West unveiled his ninth studio effort and first rap-gospel album, "Jesus Is King", last month.
