Created in 2009 to honor Maestro Robert Lyall’s tenth season with New Orleans Opera, the Maestro Circle is an exclusive group of donors contributing above $10,000 annually. The artistic leadership he has shown over the past decade could not come to life without the financial leadership of our more generous supporters.
Leadership gifts at the Maestro Circle level are truly the cornerstones of New Orleans Opera’s annual campaign. Donors receive special recognition in Opera materials and qualify for all Mastersigner benefits as well as exclusive private donor access events and underwriting opportunities.
For more information about how your leadership gift makes great opera possible, or to make your pledge, contact Bart Folse, Director of Development, at (504) 267-9532.
