Kanye West is going to do Kanye West the only way he knows how. And right now a higher being has called upon him to create an Opera. We sh*t you not.
Ye took to his Twitter to give fans the first look at the official invite to the Kanye West Opera, Nebuchadnezzar, designed by Nick Knight.

It just screams opulence and what did we expect?
Last month, the rapper-turned-gospel-singer chatted to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, mentioning the historic character.
“[God] is saying, Let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character—Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, ‘I did this’,” West said before adding, “I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’—I had a guy dressed as Jesus.”
The performance will be directed by Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft at the Hollywood Bowl this Sunday, November 24, and will feature Yeezy’s Sunday Service performers, Peter Colins and Infinities Song.
Our question is whether the show is a one-night-only deal or will it tour the world every Sunday?
Kanye has really been spreading his music, having performed in Houston jails and appearing at Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in the past week.
But this opera is sure to take it to new heights.
