What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad term and can be viewed as anything that engages an audience or a group in a positive way. Whether that’s entertaining an individual with an album choice; a couple in a restaurant; a theatrical performance; or an entire city or global audience for a festival, sports event, or religious celebration. Many forms of entertainment have evolved and been adapted to suit different occasions, or to appeal to specific audiences and cultures, for example the story of Scheherazade, in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been retold as music by Rimsky-Korsakov; film by Pasolini; and a video game.
