Despite the diversity of different forms of entertainment, familiar themes and images are often reworked in unexpected ways across media. For example, the story of Scheherazade – one of the classics from the Persian professional storytelling tradition about a woman who saves her life by telling stories – has been adapted as an orchestral work by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, as a film by Pasolini and as an innovative video game.
