Ohio Ballet Cancels Season, Lashes Out At Newspaper

The cash-strapped Ohio Ballet has canceled what remained of its 2005-06 season and is asking its subscribers not to ask for refunds for the two sets of performances that will not take place. The company’s artistic director, who has lent the ballet $40,000 this season in an effort to stabilize a dire fiscal situation, is also complaining about what he calls biased coverage in Cleveland’s only daily newspaper.
