Entertaiment is an activity providing pleasure, diversion or amusement. It can take many forms, from a person selecting private entertainment from the vast array of pre-recorded products, to a banquet adapted for two, to performances intended for thousands and even for a global audience. Entertainment is often inspired by the arts, but it also crosses over into other media. For example, the story of Scheherazade — told by professional storytelling performers in Persian culture to save their lives — has been inspiring retellings in music (Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel), films (Pasolini) and games for a long time.
