Theatre Performances – The Musical Box: A Genesis Extravaganza – Volume 2

Take a little trip back to 1973, the world of cosmic lawnmowers and Britannia, the world of Peter Gabriel’s time as front man of Genesis: the quintessential English prog-rock band. This was 1973. This was, to all intents and purposes, Genesis!

The Musical Box premieres ‘A Genesis Extravaganza,’ an unprecedented musical feast of 1970-77 favorites and rarities! In an all-out performance of live visual signature stunts, a museum-worthy array of vintage instruments and a dizzying pace of iconic tracks and stage rarities, The Musical Box indulges for the first time in its 25-year existence in an intense voyage into the world of early Genesis.

The only band ever licensed and supported by Genesis and original lead singer Peter Gabriel, presents a new, never-performed show featuring the music of studio albums like ‘Trespass’, ‘Nursery Cryme’, ‘Foxtrot’, ‘Selling England By the Pound’, ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’, ‘A Trick of the Tail’ and ‘Wind & Wuthering’.

Acclaimed for its historical re-enactment of early Genesis, The Musical Box has performed for more than a million spectators worldwide in some of the most prestigious venues such as the London Royal Albert Hall and the Paris Olympia. The Musical Box had the privilege of hosting Phil Collins and Steve Hackett as performing guests. In its quest for authenticity, The Musical Box is often cited as the best interpretation group in the world and the international reference for early Genesis.

“The playing was first class, the drummer was Collins-esque, and by the final section soul had crept into Gabriel’s doppelgänger”
