2010/2011 Season


CHRISTOPHER'S CIRCLE ($10,000 and above)

Since Christopher Stowell’s debut season in 2003, his artistic programming has been met with national acclaim and enthusiastic patronage. Christopher’s Circle was created by Christopher’s champions to support his vision of establishing OBT as a premiere ballet company in the United States, defined by its own unique style as presented in a wide-ranging repertoire. Membership in Christopher’s Circle has been established for an intimate group of supporters who annually contribute $10,000 or more.

In gratitude for this outstanding level of support, Christopher’s Circle offers its members a number of exclusive benefits. Members will enjoy gatherings with fellow supporters committed to the highest quality of ballet technique and repertoire.
