To engage in or participate in an activity that is entertaining, fun, or pleasurable. It can be a game, a musical performance, a dance, or an event such as a play or circus.
The word entertainment is used to describe many different activities and types of work, but it has become most commonly associated with the arts, especially performing arts.
Music, film and games are examples of the ways in which familiar forms of entertainment have been reinterpreted by new artists. One of the most famous examples of this is the Persian professional story Scheherazade, which has inspired many composers to write music based on it, and directors to create films based on it.
