The opera by West is directed by the Italian Vanessa Beecroft. The music is provided by, among others, the Sunday Service artists with whom West organizes a musical church service every Sunday.
The opera is named after the king of Babylon who was in power from around 605 BC to 562 BC. The king appears in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament.
West released his long-awaited and often postponed new album Jesus Is King on October 25 . The music of his Sunday Service is central to this record.
