Spirited and light, the ballerinas of Atlanta Ballet dance in “Tu Tu & More” at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. Australian choreographer Stanton Welch and French composer Maurice Ravel combine forces to compose high-energy dance moves set to Ravel’s classical French composition, “Concerto for Piano in G Major.” The fusion of Austrian painter Gustav Kilmt as costume inspiration and overall intense lighting make for an unconventional show. The Atlanta Ballet is the Official State Ballet of Georgia, and specializes in performances of classic and cutting-edge originals. Audiences of Atlanta Ballet have been left in awe for decades and this performance of “Tu Tu & More” will continue the outstanding legacy of excellence.

$20-$129. Fri., April 13-Sun., April 15. 2 p.m., 8 p.m. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Pkwy. www.cobbenergycentre.com. 770-916-2800.
