Le Sacre is CRB's first one act narrative ballet. Artistic Director Wade Schaaf's reworking of the original scheme is set in a futuristic tribal society.

Costume and set Design by Nathan Rohrer. Music by Stravinsky. Lighting design by Amanda Klegg Lyon.
The Four Seasons (2014)
Highlights from CRB's The Four Seasons. This work which features the 'recomposed' score by Max Richter is Artistic Director Wade Schaaf's exploration of how we relate to the concept of 'seasons' in life. With costumes designed by Branimira Ivanova and lighting designed by Julie Ballard, this work explores the breadth of the human experience.
