Entertaiment can be a diversion, an agreeable occupation for the mind or a form of amusement: it may involve the work of solving a crossword puzzle or the pleasure of a concert or play. It can have a social purpose as in ceremonial occasions or religious festivals. Its scope ranges from a single person choosing personal entertainment from an increasingly large selection of pre-recorded products, to an elaborate banquet or party for two; from performances intended for thousands, to satire or other forms of social criticism. The ability of entertainment to cross over different media has made it a enduring feature in cultural life. The story of Scheherazade, for example, which is in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been retold as an orchestral work by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; made into a film by Pasolini and many other directors; and now features in innovative video games.
