Now, a press release gives further information about the show’s plot, and describes it as an “innovative performance” that incorporates multiple art forms.
“Nebuchadnezzar is an original opera, based on the biblical story of the Babylonian King from the Book of Daniel,” the press release reads.
“Set in the 6th century BC, the Book of Daniel recounts Nebuchadnezzar’s transition from wicked, imperious, self-declared ruler to a true believer who finds salvation in his faith.
“West conceived of this opera as an expression of his commitment to both his faith and ever-expanding musical palette. Nebuchadnezzar brings together elements from different worlds, including opera, fine art, modern dance, and gospel music, to create an innovative performance structure. West’s sound is the bridge between these artforms.”
The show sees West team up with Vanessa Beecroft, a conceptual performance artist and frequent collaborator with the rapper. Tickets are on sale now, with prices ranging between $20 and $600.
