Entertainment is a vital part of life. Without it, people may grow bored of their work and routines. They can also miss out on opportunities to enjoy each other’s company or to learn new skills. For example, Scheherazade (a story in the professional storytelling tradition) has inspired many works of art – orchestral compositions by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; film adaptations; and even innovative video games.
