What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is activities that give pleasure, especially those involving theatre, music, dance or sport. It can also include reading or watching TV and can be social or sedentary. Children’s entertainment often involves play, which mimics adult activities like watching performances or preparing for family life; it develops skills such as those needed for sports or music and stimulates learning. One of the most famous examples of entertainment is Scheherazade – an ancient Persian story in the professional storytelling tradition that inspired composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; director Pasolini and there is even an innovative video game based on it.
