Go backstage at “Turandot,” and you’ll meet some incredible characters. My favorite is the shirtless bodybuilder carrying a large curved sword – he’s the executioner, who will lop off the head of a prince in the first act. But you’ll also meet regular people in street clothes. One of them is production manager Robin Gray, who’d just finished dinner – two slices of semi-cold pizza.
Robin Gray will be calling the Sacramento Opera’s performances of “Turandot” on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday at the Community Center Theatre.
