New Definitions of Entertaiment


Entertaiment is a broad concept and it is possible to have many different types of entertainment. It can be as simple as a person choosing a film or music to watch privately; as sophisticated as a dinner party accompanied by musicians and a play; or as large as a sporting event involving thousands of spectators. Entertainments can be playful or serious and they can also involve learning. For example, the story of Scheherazade, a character in professional storytelling traditions, has been retold as music by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; as a film by Pasolini; and as an innovative video game.
