A story on what might lie in the future for Oregon Ballet Theatre after the departure of Christopher Stowell by Marty Hughley in The Oregonian.

Money, once again, is the crucial issue. Stowell's resignation came after OBT's board of trustees started planning for future funding that Stowell said would leave it significantly smaller. He opted to leave at the end of this month because that future didn't interest him as an artist, and he said the company deserves an artistic leader who is the right match.

Board chairman Ken Hick said discussions about a new business model for the ballet are ongoing, and that no budgets for the 2013-14 season have been set. But according to various company insiders, preliminary talks have centered on an overall budget about $1 million less than the current $5.6 million.
