Subscription renewals have just arrived. Here's what's been announced -- a "sneak peek at our 23rd season" -- 2008-09 season. A nice photo of Mary Carmen Catoya -- peeking over her Kitri fan with those huge almond-shaped eyes of hers -- is featured on the brochure. There are 3 company premieres and a revival of their full-length Don Q.

N.B. unscheduled but "planned," include the company premiere of the Balanchine Swan Lake, Act II :blushing: , and a revival of La Sonnambula. All performances will have a live orchestra. There are 4 perfomances (Friday evening, Saturday matinee and evening, and Sunday matinee) at each theater.
