What Is Entertaiment?



Entertainment has become associated with amusement and lightheartedness, although some entertainments are serious in intent – such as ceremonies, religious festivals or satire. Often entertainments have links with one another – for example, the Scheherazade story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition was inspiring for composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; for film directors Pasolini and Pasolini; and for innovative video games. The experience of entertaining can be adapted to suit any scale – from the private amusements chosen by an individual, through parties involving music, dance and food; to performances intended for thousands.
