Ten acrobats from the Circa ensemble bring Stravinsky’s seminal The Rite of Spring to the circus stage. Pulsating with tension and infused with dark humour, this distinctive production from Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz confronts humanity’s inter-connectivity, our inherent sexual desire and relationship with divinity.

Featuring a piercing lighting design by Veronique Bennett and a stirring new composition by Phillipe Bachman for the first half, Sacre penetrates the senses and stirs the soul.

Admission starts at $45  (Prices subject to change); Call the box office at 310.434.3200 or visit it person – 310 11th St. Santa Monica CA 90401 (beginning two hours prior to performance);
