  • Tu Tu Choreography by Stanton Welch
  • Music by Maurice Ravel
  • blink (world premiere) Choreography by Tara Lee
  • Minus 16 Choreography by Ohad Naharin

In April, Atlanta Ballet presents three show-stopping works spotlighting the amazing spectrum of dance today.  Atlanta Ballet dancer Tara Lee returns with blink, a brand new work, after creating several groundbreaking world premieres for the Company. Also back by popular demand, Ohad Naharin’s infectious Minus 16 will bring you to your feet… and maybe even center stage. The Atlanta Ballet premiere of Tu Tu is not your conventional affair. Get ready for a highly stylized classical work with a playful twist.
