What Is Entertainment?



Entertainment is a broad category that includes a range of activities from play to watching performances. It can be private and intimate or adapted to suit large groups or global audiences. It can be serious or light-hearted, and often draws on familiar themes and structures that can transcend different media – for example, the Scheherazade story from the professional storytelling tradition has inspired a number of orchestral works by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski, as well as a film and innovative video games.
