Kanye West goes opera with King Nebuchadnezzar

A screen grab of the performance.

We have all heard the story of King Nebuchadnezzar, ancient King of Babylon and a major figure from the book of Daniel in the Bible.

However, if you haven’t, rap star and professed Christian Kanye West retold that story in the form of an opera featuring his Sunday Service choir and others.

Sheck Wes of G.O.O.D Music starred as the titular king in the story while Kanye performed the role of narrator. The opera was directed by Vanessa Beecroft a long-time collaborator of West.

The opera is now available on Tidal for persons who missed the live performance which is just the latest in the series of events that West has done since stating that he’s a Christian.
