Vienna Festival Ballet also make a return to the Arena next week when they put on their new production of the fairy tale Cinderella.

Based on the traditional story, the music is taken from a vast array of the Italian composer Rossini’s most famous operatic achievements.

Cinderella can be seen at 2.30pm next Saturday, May 28, and tickets are £22 with concessions £17 and under 16s £13.50.

n Jools Holland’s appearance at the Arena next Wednesday, May 25, has sold out.
