The title, Nebuchadnezzar, comes from the longest ruling Babylonian king. This spectacle will be directed by performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and will include performances from Kanye’s Sunday Service choir. Peter Colins and Infinite Song will also be providing music for the opera.

If you’re hoping to attend Kanye’s opera, be ready to buy tickets to the event tomorrow, November 18.
