In Rennes, Netflix chooses Thabor for its romanticism

Saturday afternoon, May 11, 2024, mirrors sit in the middle of flower beds at the foot of the Thabor kiosk in Rennes. A violinist plays Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and other songs that make up the series’ soundtrack Netflix, The Bridgertons Chronicle.

The young Chystina, 21 years old, parasol in hand and ceremonial white dress, blends into the deliciously romantic decor. To the point that the audience of the series, the vast majority female, asked her to pose with them.

Contrary to appearances, the young woman, who came specially from Vannes (Morbihan), is not part of the organizing team of this small marketing event. She is a fan among others. Except that she has just won the diamond ticket (the equivalent of the golden ticket of Charlie and the chocolate factory), distributed randomly. It gives him the right to attend, Tuesday evening on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, the premiere of season 3 of The Bridgertons Chronicle.

Rennes with Paris, Lyon and Lille

Three other tickets were distributed at the same time in Paris, Lyon and Lille. “Each time, a romantic setting, corresponding to the setting, to the universe of the series, was chosen”, explains a person responsible for the promotion operation.

In Rennes, the fans met in Thabor Park. How does the American series, which recounts the life and marital arrangements of high society London at the beginning of the 19th centurye century, is it worthy of interest? “It’s a whole, Chrystina smiled. The romance, the costumes, the characters… Particularly female who, far from being passive, play a very active role in their love life. And then, there are black or mixed-race actresses with whom I can identify. »

The public, who did not have the chance to draw the diamond ticket, consoled themselves with envelopes, distributed on the fly, and containing words of love or advice for declaring their love.
