Dallas — For today's giveaway, we have tickets for the cinema screenings of the Bolshoi Ballet's production of The Lady of the Camellias and the National Theatre of London's devised production of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. They both show at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano, so read on for instructions for each (you can enter for both, but send two separate emails):
Description: This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfillment on her own terms. From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, JANE EYRE’s spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart. Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. Originally staged by Bristol Old Vic, director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National Theatre in a single, exhilarating performance of this acclaimed reimagining of Brontë’s masterpiece.

Despite her infidelity, Armand will do all he can to win the beautiful woman’s heart and convince her to leave her indulgent life.
