Tour of the Production Studios, Properties Department.
Hi. I’m Bob.
Most humans call me the opera dog. My human is the Props Master for Utah Opera, so I spend my days running around and exploring the Productions Studios. This pretty much makes me the resident expert.
Opera Gal asked me to show you some of my favorite places for sniffing and exploring.
This is one of the work tables in the prop shop, where I spend a lot of my time. (It’s the best place for napping.) The props crew are always busy – If it’s not the set, and not a costume, it’s their responsibility. Sofa? Props. Pumpkins? Props. Huge basket for hiding a human? Props.
My favorite is when they have to have real food for props. My human doesn’t let me have it, so I have to be sneaky.
This is just an example of something you can find on a shelf in the props warehouse… a row of lanterns of different sizes, shapes, and colors.
