The show was first staged at Art Basel Miami, and follows Nebuchadnezzar, his first opera, which premiered last month at the Hollywood Bowl.

Mary 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…[and] 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 Kanye‘s Sunday Service collective.
