After joining Joel Osteen's service, Kanye West has announced his first opera, Nebuchadnezzar.

As expected, West's opera is no secular work — Nebuchadnezzar will focus on the eponymous Babylonian king, who is widely mentioned in the Bible's Book of Daniel and was one of the most famous kings of Ancient Babylon.

The opera is scheduled to take place tomorrow, November 24 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Directed by Kanye West's long-time collaborator Vanessa Beecroft, the opera will feature musical performances by the Sunday Service choir and others. You can purchase tickets here.

This isn't the first time West has brought up Nebuchadnezzar. During his Apple Music's Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, West compared himself to Nebuchadnezzar: "He was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this. I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’ — I had a guy dressed as Jesus."
