Coming today at Abu Dhabi, from Aug 06 – Aug 08, 2015, is Sesame Street Live, Elmo Makes Music – a tour that features dozen of popular songs, including the classic ones that children have come to love to sing along, such as “C Is for Cookie” and “The Alphabet Song.”
That’s right, the full gang from the American Sesame Street TV series, one of the oldest and the most popular children’s shows of our times, are coming to UAE at the du Forum—an exciting indoor live entertainment venue in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
It is sure to be a musical event like no other with Abby, Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and their Sesame Street friends to go on stage to share their love of music in Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music”. Running time will be 90 minutes.
As part of Abu Dhabi Summer Season, this event is sure to delight and entertain the kids; Sesame Street members – including Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Kermit the Frog, and the number-loving Count from Muppet Show favorites – will be on hand to interact with the crowd in making it an enjoyable experience for all who attend.
According to AbuDhabiEvents.ae, a quick source to find events that suit you managed by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), “the show features Abby Cadabby [who] loves to sing and wants to start a new band on Sesame Street! Abby, Elmo and friends discover ‘instruments’ they never knew existed…pots and spoons, trash can lids, and even cookie jars! [The scene brings them together where a live audience can see] Everyone’s favorite fun, furry and feathered friends teach children that we can make and enjoy beautiful music together.”
This is an occasion to meet the Sesame Street’s Global Cast of Characters in person.

Fascinating Fact: Did you know that the United Arab Emirates has a Sesame Workshop? It is true. It has programs aimed to provide children with the confidence to learn the alphabet, numbers, and social skills in a fun way. For more details, visit www.sesameworkshop.org.
Parent company Sesame Workshop (a non-profit educational organization) and the Arab Bureau of Education for the Gulf States has been planning the relaunching Iftah Ya Simsim – the Arabic adaptation of the global favorite Sesame Street, featuring Jim Henson’s Muppets. The show will be back to Arab television in September 2015, as per The National in a post. That’s right, an upcoming revival of the Arabic version of Sesame Street, Iftah Ya Simsim, which was recently filmed in Abu Dhabi will premiere this year.
Today, the Sesame Street programs broadcast in more than 140 countries. Outside of television entertainment, the workshop provides educational programs and initiatives that help children around the world to learn and grow with their favorite Sesame Street characters.
