The Connections Between Forms of Entertaiment

Entertaiment relates to a wide range of activities and can be applied on an individual scale, as in the choice of music or food for a dinner party, or on a large scale, such as performance intended for thousands, or even a global audience. The connections between forms of entertainment can be demonstrated by the way a story, such as Scheherazade from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, inspires orchestral works by composers like Rimsky-Korsakov or Ravel, film adaptations by directors including Pasolini, and innovative video games.
