Articles about Entertaiment

Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement: The opera was an elaborate entertainment. The daily crossword is an entertainment for many people.

Today, the word can be used on any scale – from an individual who chooses their personal entertainment from among a huge selection of pre-recorded products, to banquets adapted for two, to performances intended for thousands and even for a global audience. It is sometimes abbreviated ‘entmt’ on fliers and in industry news publications where space is at a premium.

The power of entertainment is illustrated by the famous story of Scheherazade, a Persian professional storyteller who saved her life by telling stories. This tale inspired orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; a film adaptation by Pasolini; and innovative video games.
