Established in 1989 in Portland, Oregon Ballet Theatre is a classically based repertory ballet company dancing the works of George Balanchine, William Forsythe, Lar Lubovitch, Christopher Wheeldon, Trey McIntyre, Jerome Robbins, and Christopher Stowell, among others.
Under Founding Artistic Director James Canfield, a former principal dancer with the Joffrey Ballet, OBT has developed a unique repertoire and distinctive style. In 2003, following a distinguished, 16-year career as a principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet, Christopher Stowell became OBT's second Artistic Director. The son of Pacific Northwest Ballet Founding Artistic Directors Kent Stowell and Francia Russell, Mr. Stowell possesses an impressive ballet lineage. His extensive training and experience, deep knowledge of the repertoire, and dedication to the discipline's exacting classical and contemporary vocabulary, are all reflected in the work OBT brings to the stage.
