Kanye West, who recently released his gospel album, has announced that he will be launching a Biblical opera that will tell the story of King Nebuchadnezzar.
According to Faithwire, West announced the show on Twitter, saying the opera will debut at the Hollywood Bowl on Nov. 24 and feature music by the Sunday Service choir.
Tickets for the show go on sale Monday.
Nebuchadnezzar ruled Babylon for more than 40 years, from about 605 BC to 562 BC, Forbes explains. His story is found in the Book of Daniel. In the book of Daniel, Daniel reveals and interprets the king’s dream after others have failed to do so.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
