What is Entertaiment?



Entertaiment is entertainment that entertains. It can range from a private performance for an individual to the staging of large-scale events intended for a global audience. It can involve activities such as cooking or fencing that were traditionally used in war or hunting to performances that include a wide range of styles from a rite to a party to a satirical pageant or non secular event. The power of entertainment to cross media is evidenced by the way the Scheherazade story, for example, has been told as an orchestral work, a film and a video game.
