The fall 2003 season of St. Ann’s Warehouse kicked off Wednesday night with a reading by Brooklyn’s literary golden boy of the moment, author Jonathan Lethem, from his latest work, "Fortress of Solitude."

St. Ann’s season continues Sept. 20 with a night of conversation and performance by Grammy-award winning country singer Emmylou Harris (at left), who recently garnered her 11th statue for her work on the soundtrack of the Coen brothers’ film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Harris proved herself a friend of Brooklyn’s arts community when she lent her considerable talents to Celebrate Brooklyn in 2001, performing with her band Spyboy (in support of her "Red Dirt Girl" album) for the performing arts series’ first-ever benefit concert.

Saturday’s event begins at 9 pm and will be hosted by Hendrik Hertzberg, a former speechwriter for President Jimmy Carter and now a senior editor and staff writer for the New Yorker. Tickets are $25.

Also part of St. Ann’s new season, the Polish Cultural Institute will present "Carmen Funebre (Funeral Song)," a theatrical work employing dance, fire, stilt-walkers and a chilling soundscape, at the Tobacco Warehouse, across the street from St. Ann’s at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park (Dock at Water streets), rain or shine, from Sept. 26 through Sept. 28. Performances take place at 8:30 pm and (standing only) tickets are $20.

On Oct. 10 and Oct. 11, Beth Gibbons (the voice of Portishead) and Paul Webb (otherwise known as Rustin Man) will perform live at St. Ann’s Warehouse at 8 pm. Tickets are $27.50.

Appropriately for Halloween weekend, the Tiger Lillies - a freak-cabaret trio - return to St. Ann’s Warehouse with "The Sea" on Nov. 1 at 8 pm. Tickets are $25.

From Nov. 7 to Nov. 30, Mabou Mines’ production of Ibsen’s "Dollhouse," adapted by Lee Breuer into high comedy with deep bite, will be staged Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, and Sundays at 4 pm. Tickets are $27.50.

Kristjan Jarvi’s Absolute Ensemble tribute to Frank Zappa, "Absolute Zappa," will kick off its tour at St. Ann’s Warehouse Dec. 5-6 at 8 pm. Tickets are $30.

The season wraps with "Hiroshima Maiden," a theatrical piece featuring Japanese bunraku puppetry written and directed by Dan Hurlin with music by Robert Een. Performances are Jan. 14-Feb. 1, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 4 pm. Tickets are $25.
