I recieved an email from them announcing the next season:

October 4 - 15, 2006
The Joffrey Ballet becomes the first American company to present Sir Frederick Ashton's Cinderella, one of the greatest ballets of this timeless fairy tale. The classic rags-to-riches story comes to life in a dazzling full-evening ballet set to Sergei Prokofiev's brilliant score.

Destiny's Dances: Groundbreaking Ballets from the 20th Century
February 14 - 25, 2007
This program features three ballets by choreographers who helped redefine ballet, including Leonide Massine's Les Présages, George Balanchine's Cotillon, and the profound and moving anti-war statement The Green Table.

Founders' Gold: Arpino and Joffrey's Timeless Treasures
April 25 - May 6, 2007
The 50th Anniversary Season will culminate with Founders' Gold: Arpino & Joffrey's Timeless Treasures, a program featuring four magnificent works by company Co-Founders Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey. The program features Robert Joffrey's Gamelan, and three works by Gerald Arpino, including Sea Shadow, the high energy Fanfarita, and the popular Suite St. Saëns.

hmmm...Cotillion, really? Anyone know anything about how it got into their repertory? Because the Bernard Taper Balanchine biography seems to think it "only lived for a few performances and then had disapeared forever."

Gabrielle, Cotillion was revived in 1988, but was performed much since then.
