Who we are

Rieder Art Consulting and Entertainment is a classical music and event management agency founded in 2005. Its objective is to implement ballet, opera and orchestra tours in the Middle East while also promoting Arab cultural heritage in the West.


Together with our parent company Rieder Promotions Vienna, which has over 20 years of experience, we operate in many countries in Europe, Asia and America. We enjoy excellent contacts to the world’s best opera, concert and event venues, top music and ballet festivals as well as to the world’s most famous orchestras and individual artists.

Message from the CEO

Since the foundation of Rieder Art Consulting and Entertainment it has been our goal to contribute to the evolvement of international cultural life in the Middle Eastern region.


On a business trip to East Asia more than 25 years ago, I noticed that hardly anyone knew about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Ludwig van Beethoven. Nowadays, however classical, music is very popular. We would like to achieve the same popularity in the Middle Eastern region and have therefore chosen to start operating from Dubai as our hub for all Middle Eastern and Asian projects.


Over the years we have created personal relations with artists and ensembles which make our productions a pleasant experience, not only for us but also for the audience. We believe that the key to success is not calculated by the quantity or benefits but the quality and that is where we put our focus on.
