What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad concept that encompasses many forms of entertainment ranging from the individual who chooses private entertainment products from a now enormous catalogue, to a dinner adapted for two, to a party with music or dance and even to performances intended for thousands and a global audience. In addition, many forms of entertainment have a serious purpose and can be considered to be social, ceremonial, religious or political. For example, the story of Scheherazade, an ancient professional storytelling tradition in the Persian world, has inspired a number of orchestral works by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski, films by directors including Pasolini, and innovative video games.
