Kanye West’s opera “Nebuchadnezzar” will have its world premiere on Sunday, Nov. 24. 2019 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

However, those unable to check out the opera live can still get a chance to see it via live stream on Tidal, which offers a free 60-day trial. The showcase begins at 4 p.m. Pacific / 7 p.m. Eastern Time zone.

The opera will be directed by Vanessa Beecroft, a performance artist, photographer, and painter who has famously staged “B61, Still Death! Darfur Still Deaf?” The opera will also feature music from West’s Sunday Service performers, as well as Peter Colins and Infinite Songs.

There is little information on the opera’s story, which is based on the famed Babylonian ruler that was also the inspiration for Verdi’s breakout opera “Nabucco.”
