Netflix has partnered with Shondaland and Fever to produce “The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience.” This immersive experience, which will have locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, Montréal and Washington D.C., will feature actors and décor based on London in 1813. It will also have a dance show and music from the “Bridgerton” soundtrack. Available shows will begin in March 2022.
Netflix released “Bridgerton,” a television series following a family in London high society during the Regency era, in December 2020. It has now announced that season two is on the way.
“Shondaland effortlessly transported ‘Bridgerton’ viewers into a reimagined Regency-era London, capturing hearts around the globe as fans connected with every aspect of the series from its delightful characters and the superb actors who brought them to life, to the costume design and art and set direction to the soundtrack,” said Greg Lombardo, head of experiences at Netflix, in a Sept. 9 press release. “We’ve partnered with Fever on ‘The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience’ to create a similarly unique fan experience designed to immerse attendees in the lavish world of ‘Bridgerton’ and bring this world to them wherever they are.”
The experience will also feature interactive rooms, a visit with the Queen and period costumes to bring attendees into the Regency era.
“It would be interesting to see Netflix make an interactive experience, as it is a period show so the costumes would be absolutely wild,” said Arianda Mentar, junior pre-nursing student. “The cast is so diverse, (so) it would feel inclusive for everyone.”
Ashley Solis, junior radiologic science major, said she would enjoy attending the event because it allows attendees to experience a life and time period they would not normally experience.
“I would most definitely attend the event because I have seen in other countries they hold things similar to this, and I think it would be an overall cool experience with being able to dress up and meet more people who have a common interest with me,” Solis said. “It would be fun to live a life I am not used to and pretend to be somebody else for the day.”
Tickets first went on sale on Sept. 16 beginning at $49. Those interested in ticket availability or in learning more about the experience can visit http://bridgertonexperience.com/.
