Earlier this week, Kanye West announced that he had another opera in the works. Mary followed the Christmas nativity story. The new opera Mary, was staged on December 8 at the boat-racing arena Miami Marine Stadium.
While in Miami, Kanye West was spotted with a bizarre and unique look.
The 42 year old rapper was spotted wearing a baggy silver outfit with silver face paint covering his entire head, his face and hands.
He also wore matching silver socks and silver slides as he arrived at the event, which was held at Miami Marine Stadium on Sunday afternoon at the final day of Art Basel. West took to Twitter on Thursday for a rare tweet where he promoted the opera, which was directed by Nicole Beecroft with music by the Sunday Service choir.
The tweet also included a bible verse Luke 1:30-31. Mary is his second opera, following his debut Nebuchadnezzar, which earned several excellent reviews.
West served as the narrator of Nebuchadnezzar, Sheck Wes, the titular Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, which featured musical performances by singer Peter Collins and Infinity’s Song.
West also made headlines last week when it was revealed he will join will join televangelist Joel Osteen as part of his annual Night of Hope at Yankee Stadium in 2020.
Back in October, West released his album Jesus is King, a Christian hip hop album that set a unique Billboard sales record. It became the first album ever to simultaneously top the Billboard 200, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums.
