The program includes more than 20 concerts at the Dubai Opera and Theater at the Mall of Emirates. The Middle East Symphony Festival is becoming an event of the highest quality in one of the leading cities in the world, attracting more and more true connoisseurs of classical music.

Among the stars of the festival is the incomparable Denis Matsuev, one of the best pianists in the world and much loved in Dubai. His last concert in the UAE at the InClassica International Music Festival in September 2021 sold out in a matter of days.

On February 23, together with conductor Alexander Sladkovsky and the State Symphony Orchestra of Tatarstan, Denis Leonidovich will return with a unique concert, which will feature works by two of Russia's most beloved composers - Sergei Rachmaninoff and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The evening will begin with Rachmaninoff's iconic Piano Concerto No. 2. After the intermission, the orchestra will return to perform Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, one of the composer's most popular and recognizable works.

On International Women's Day, March 8, Khibla Gerzmava, one of the most sought-after opera stars in the world and one of the few Russian singers of the current generation who truly live up to the title of "opera diva" at Dubai Opera, will make her debut. People's Artist of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Abkhazia Khibla is a unique phenomenon on the Russian opera stage. With a bright and direct voice, emotional and passionate, she performs the leading female roles in a wide repertoire of famous operas.

This time, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky will present a unique program at the Dubai Opera, from works by such composers as Vincenzo Bellini, Francesco Cilea, Reynaldo Hahn, Giuseppe Verdi and many others.
