Def Jam Recordings has announced that Kanye West will be bringing his original opera, Mary, to New York City’s famed David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center. The Vanessa Beecrfot opera willl come to the prestigious stage on Sunday, December 22nd – just a few days before Christmas! “Mary” was first staged in Miami at Art Basel, and is the followup to West’s first opera, “Nebuchadnezzar.”
“Mary” is an original opera that is based on the biblical story of the miraculous events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. The Books of Matthew and Luke recount the story of Mary, who was divinely chosen by God to bring forth the Messiah.
As a visionary of our times, West brings together elements from different worlds – fusing opera, fine art, modern dance, and gospel music. His new visual interpretation also brings forth an innovative performance structure by the Sunday Service collective.
