Entertaiment is entertainment at a range of scales: from an intimate performance intended for just two people, to parties and celebrations in large spaces, to performances for thousands. Increasingly, entertainers provide experiences that encourage a particular form of intellectual growth. For example, the story of Scheherazade in the Persian professional storytelling tradition has inspired Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel to compose orchestral music, Pasolini to make a film adaptation, and now innovative video games that tell this timeless tale.
