Netflix has announced The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience coming to select cities around the globe in 2022.
Guests will be transported to England’s Regency-era London for a live concert by a string quartet playing Bridgerton‘s soundtrack. Alongside the music, attendees will be acquainted with familiar characters to relive and participate in celebrated moments from Netflix and Shondaland’s hit series.
Attendees will be guided through the evening by the voice of the enigmatic Lady Whistledown and presented with opportunities to prove they are deserving of Her Majesty, the Queen’s attention. The experience features immersive rooms, including a visit to Madame Delacroix’s modiste to get fitted for the occasion, a stop at an underground Regency-era Painting Studio to strike their most regal pose, and a highly-anticipated visit with the Queen to try and win Her Majesty’s favour. Throughout the evening, dancers will perform alongside a string quartet playing music inspired by the series, including the classical covers of contemporary songs.
Touring in dozens of cities around the globe. Los Angeles, Chicago, Montreal, and Washington, D.C. will be the first to launch the experience starting early 2022.
“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. 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,” said Greg Lombardo, Head of Experiences, Netflix.
“In an effort to break through the boundaries of storytelling, Shondaland is proud to provide audiences on a global scale with curated experiences transcending beyond their viewer experience,” added Sandie Bailey, Shondaland’s Chief Design and Digital Media Officer. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Fever and Netflix again to further expand on these efforts, and now bring Bridgerton fans in the US and Canada an immersive experience everyone will love.”
Separately, Brigerton will also be the theme for the next Secret Cinema event in London, UK.
Bridgeton season 2 is currently in production whilst seasons 3 and 4 have already been ordered.
