About Festival

This coming February and March, the eagerly-awaited second edition of the Symphonic Middle East Festival will take place in Dubai, presented by CMDI Group in partnership with SAMIT Event Group, and supported by the European Foundation for Support of Culture. 

Following on from its highly successful inauguration in 2021, this upcoming edition of the festival promises a second year of profound world-class music-making as it welcomes numerous renowned performers to the Middle East from across the globe. 

In addition to the extensive series of classical concerts throughout the festival, the event will also feature three performances of contemporary composer Alexey Shor’s Crystal Palace ballet, an extensive and lavish work for stage based on true events in 18th-century Russia during the reign of Empress Anna Ioannovna. 

With concerts taking place at Dubai Opera and the Theatre at the Mall of the Emirates, the Symphonic Middle East Festival stands poised to deliver an event of the highest quality, charm and prestige in one of the world’s foremost cities, continuing its legacy of promoting and developing the proliferation of classical music to all parts of the world.
