It was only a matter of time.
Kanye West has announced his first-ever opera.
Nebuchadnezzar, named after the Babylonian king that appears on the Nick Knight-designed event invitation, will take place at the Hollywood Bowl on November 24 and is directed by performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, who has collaborated with Kanye a number of times.
