Rossini makes full use of the familiar elements of the classic Cinderella story but Beethoven's opera may be less familiar. Fidelio tells of a woman's love for her wrongfully imprisoned husband, Florestan, and the lengths to which she goes to be reunited with him.
In conjunction with English Touring Opera, The Independent is able to offer its readers five free pairs of tickets for tonight's performance of La Cenerentola and tomorrow night's performance of Fidelio. In addition, for the same two performances, The Independent is able to offer pounds 5 off the top two ticket prices (pounds 32.50 & pounds 27.50). These offers can be claimed by telephoning Sadler's Wells at the Peacock Theatre Box Office on 0171- 314 8800
