This triple-bill collaboration between Cincinnati Ballet and BalletMet Columbus is presented in three distinct pieces: Wild Sweet Love, Who Cares? and Age of Innocence. The night begins with the namesake Wild Sweet Love, an exploration of love’s ups and downs with contemporary music from artists as varied as Roberta Flack and Queen. George Balanchine’s Who Cares? follows — a full corps de ballet encompassing the spirit of Broadway with familiar songs like “The Man I Love” and “I Got Rhythm.” BalletMet Columbus rounds out the night with Age of Innocence, a modern piece inspired by Jane Austen and named for an Edith Wharton novel.

8 p.m. Friday; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday. $32-$105. Aronoff Center, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-621-5282, cballet.org.
