After a financial rough patch and six changes in leadership in six years, the Orlando Ballet is bringing in someone widely considered an arts management maestro. Michael Kaiser has just started consulting with the Orlando Ballet in an effort to re-energize the 42-year-old organization.

Kaiser has helped several art institutions turn their financial positions around, for the better.

"What I find is there are a lot of organizations that face challenges that really have an awful lot of very important assets, they're just not communicating them well to their communities," said Kaiser.

Kaiser talks about his past work and what he plans to do for the local ballet in this edition of Spotlight. Listen in the player above.
