When Henri Matisse accepted the challenge to design decorations for a Dominican chapel in Vence, in southern France, he relished the opportunity to transform a small and ordinary space into a spiritual vessel through the power of his art. As the Chapel of the Rosary neared completion in 1951, the artist asserted that his stained-glass windows, ceramic tile murals, altar furniture, and other decorations gave the limited space a sense of physical immensity and spiritual vastness, with color and light as the central transformative elements. In addition to being the most thorough expression of Matisse's career-long aspirations for architectural decoration, the Vence chapel is also a key monument in a major postwar initiative within the Catholic Church, and in the modern history of religious art.

TESTA 006 Fuller Auditorium

“The Fall from our Ancient Nature: Plato’s Aristophanic Speech on Eros and the Biblical Story of Adam and Eve”

Speaker:  Dr. Ronna Burger, Catherine & Henry J. Gaisman Chair, Sizeler Professor of Jewish Studies,Tulane University

The two roots of the Western tradition, Bible and Greek philosophy, can be seen in two texts, neither originally known to the other, that each account for the human condition through the story of a “fall.”  More specifically, both speak of a divine punishment for a criminal deed by our ancestors, the primordial human beings.  One is the speech on eros that Plato puts into the mouth of the comic poet Aristophanes in the Symposium, the other the account of man and woman formed out of the original human being in the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis.  What do these two texts tell us about Athens and Jerusalem as the dual source of our tradition?  

Free and open to the public.

This spring, Assumption College will present a concert-staged performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The performance, which will feature the College’s Chorale and student actors performing lead roles, will be presented in the new 400-seat Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall of the Tsotsis Family Academic Center on April 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m., and April 22 at 2 p.m. 

To purchase tickets, please click on your preferred date to enjoy the performance:

“The College community looks forward to  continuing Assumption’s tradition of hosting a spring musical, this time, showcasing Assumption’s new state-of-the art performance hall, with one of the most sophisticated sound systems for a college or university on the East Coast,” said Richard Monroe ’85, who will direct the spring performance. “The new performance hall is a fitting space to showcase the depth of talent at Assumption while demonstrating the College’s commitment to the performing arts.”

About Joseph

According to The Musical Company, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which is celebrating its 50th year in 2018, is the “reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.” The story is told entirely through song, and was the first musical collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber (music) and Tim Rice (lyrics). This family-friendly musical follows Joseph’s journey as a slave, a prisoner, and ultimately the “right-hand man” of the Pharaoh. 

Originally developed as a “pop cantata" for a high school choir performance, Lloyd Webber and Rice expanded their piece into the now beloved musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Since debuting in March of 1968, it has been performed around the world, has earned several Tony Award nominations, and adapted into a film featuring Donny Osmond as Joseph.
