Entertaiment is a multifaceted concept that appeals to people of all backgrounds, ages, and emotional states. It can provide escapism, humor, education, and even cerebral engagement. Children might find entertainment in cartoons or playgrounds, while adults might prefer a fine art exhibit, a jazz concert, or a drama. Entertaiment can also be social, whether through team sports or multiplayer video games. The story of Scheherazade, for example, has been told as an orchestral piece by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; as a film; and in many innovative video games.
