Kanye West Announces Sunday Service Opera 'Nebuchadnezzar'

Will Ye's tale about the biblical figure be similar to Robert Townsend's 'Carmen: A Hip Hopera'?

(AllHipHop News) With his Jesus Is King album slipping another four spots on the Billboard 200 chart this week, Kanye West seems ready to move his artistic energy in another direction. His next endeavor will apparently be an opera.

Ye made the announcement on Twitter. On Sunday evening, he posted a photo of a golden invitation for the Vanessa Beecroft-directed Nebuchadnezzar. According to the tweet, the production will include music with Sunday Service, Peter Colins, and Infinities Song. 

Nebuchadnezzar is scheduled for November 24 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The invite artwork was designed by Nick Knight.

Previously, West released a Jesus Is King IMAX movie in connection to his new music project of the same name. He has also been the creative force behind the Runaway and Cruel Summer short films.
