Tidal Announces Exclusive Streaming Rights Over Nebuchadnezzar Opera
Tidal Kanye Nebuchadnezzar Opera: TIDAL has today, announced its exclusive livestreaming rights over Kanye West’s Nebuchadnezzar Opera. We announced earlier, that the opera event will hold today, sunday Nov 24th at the Hollywood Bowl.
This is a significant development as Kanye hasn’t partnered on anything publicly with Jay-Z’s company in a very long time.
The opera is directed by performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and features music by Sunday Service collective, singer Peter Collins and the group Infinity’s Song. The livestream will be available to members on Kanyewest.TIDAL.com. Non-members can sign up for a 60-day trial to catch it.
Nebuchadnezzar is an original opera, based on the biblical story of the Babylonian King from the Book of Daniel. It is set in the 6th century BC and recounts his transition from a wicked, ruler to a true believer who finds salvation in his faith.
Fans can tune into the stream via the embedded link below beginning 4PM PT/7PM ET on Sunday.
The relationship between Jay Z and Kanye west has been anything but rosy, stemming from the fact that the ‘Young Forever’ rapper missed the wedding of Kanye to Kim Kadarshian.
This put a strain to their relationship and according to People, Kanye calls it the beginning of their rift. He also states that he never asked Jay directly, why he missed the wedding.
According to E-online, Jay-z reveals that Kanye’s rant last year hurt him because he brought Beyonce into it. He made these comments on the streaming service, TIDAL. It would be his first remarks about Kanye’s rant and his first interview since the June 30 release of his album 4:44.
Also, Last November, Kanye went on a rant about Hov and Bey at a concert. He pleaded with Jay to call him and accused Bey of refusing to perform at this 2016 MTV Video Music Awards unless her “Formation” video beat him and Drake to win Video of the Year, which it did. Kanye then cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour and then checked himself into a hospital to treat exhaustion.
