SCOTTISH Opera get into the seasonal spirit at the Festival Theatre this week, where they continue to tell the story of Cinderella, the ultimate rags to riches tale.

Rossini’s La Cenerentola is a Cinderella story... but not quite as you may know it.

Forced to work as servant to her stepfather and step-sisters, Cenerentola dreams of the past and of a better life.

Hearing that Don Ramiro is holding a ball to choose a wife, her sisters prepare themselves for royal life. Then a mysterious veiled lady makes an unexpected appearance at the palace and their ambitions look set to be thwarted...

La Cenerentola, Festival Theatre, Nicolson Street, tonight & Saturday, 7.15pm, £10-£80.50, 0131-529 6000
