Kanye West – NEBUCHADNEZZAR

KANYE WEST TO DEBUT NEW OPERA ‘NEBUCHADNEZZAR’ AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24

DIRECTED BY VANESSA BEECROFT, WITH MUSIC BY SUNDAY SERVICE, PETER COLLINS & INFINITY’S SONG

On Sunday, November 24thKanye West will debut the new opera ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ live at the Hollywood Bowl. The opera, directed by Vanessa Beecroft, will feature the Sunday Service collective, as well as singer Peter Collins and the group Infinity’s Song.

Nebuchadnezzar is an original opera, based on the biblical story of the Babylonian King from the Book of Daniel. 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. 

Vanessa Beecroft’s work has been shown internationally since 1993 and often presents social commentary and critique. She is best known for her conceptual performance art, which often references the historical and political associations of the place in which the installation is held. Since 2008, Vanessa has collaborated extensively with Kanye West.
