Kanye West to Stage Next Opera ‘MARY’ at Miami Marlins Stadium
Kanye West is not playing games. This Sunday, December 8th, he is staging his follow up opera to ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ with ‘Mary’. The event will take place at Miami Marlins Stadium. It is directed by Vanessa Beecroft.
“‘Mary’ is an original opera, 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,” a press release reads.
It continues, “West’s Mary brings together elements from different worlds – including opera, fine art, modern dance, and gospel music – to create a new visual interpretation and innovative performance structure. ‘Mary’ is performed by the Sunday Service collective, a ministry formed in January of 2019, in collaboration with Access Opera. With the Sunday Service Collective working alongside a cast of professional opera singers, ‘Mary’ represents an innovative interpretation of West’s own music, gospel standards, and traditional opera alike.”
