Talossa's traditions in the performing arts go (mythically) back to
the days of our (mythical) Berber forebears, to whom we credit the
invention of just about everything good and noble and fun. For
It is well known that the Berbers invented football, and that all
forms of football played around the world descend from the Berber
original. Talossan Football is the most pure
form of the original. Read the rules to Talossan Football at the official
site of the Talossan Football League (TFL).
It is well known that the Berbers invented opera, and that all opera
around the world today descends from the Berber originals. Talossa
is proud to support not one but two Royal Opera companies.
The first of these, performing lighter operatic fare, is the
Royal Opera (RO). Its brother company,
bringing the joy of music to audiences in Talossa's Antarctic territory,
is the Royal Pengöpäts Heavy Opera
It is well known that the Berbers invented football and opera at the
same time, because these two performing art forms were originally one
and the same. Keeping this tradition alive, the Royal Opera (RO) partners
with the Talossan Football League (TFL) as the ROTFL.
At annual ROTFL events (TFL games with orchestral accompaniment by the RO),
Talossans enjoy full performances of authentic Berber
Football, as true to the original as possible, with performances of
a complete operatic act at each football intermission by the players.

of the loves and losses of Berber football and opera performers
in medieval Spain.
This original opera,
written in the Talossan language, is entitled
El Taloçáit d'Isiviglhâ (The Berber of

It is well known that the Berbers invented literature. In Talossa, the
grand literary tradition is kept up by active writers, working in many
different languages, notably English and Talossan. Feel free to read
some of the examples of contemporary literary
works in Talossan.
It is well known that the Berbers invented race car driving. Talossa's
love for the fastest performing art extends to the annual
Ice Flats 200, a popular (mythical) race on one of
NASCAR's (mythical) junior circuits held annually on the frozen surface of our
Talossans are involved in a great many other performing arts, especially
if you count Fantasy Football Leagues, Fantasy Baseball Leagues, Fantasy
NASCAR Leagues, and things like that,
all of which find their participants from among our citizens
on the Kingdom's online forums.
