Screening of “GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS” at Cascadia Chamber Opera Festival

Cascadia Chamber Opera Festival will screen the film of Gordon Getty’s opera Goodbye, Mr. Chips at the Liberty Theater in Astoria, Oregon on August 25, 2023.  The festival runs from August 20 through September 3.

Getty’s fourth opera, based on the 1934 novella Goodbye, Mr. Chips and other stories by James Hilton, was originally planned as a fully-staged, live opera performance, but after COVID-19 cancellations, the team reimagined the work as a film.

Directed by Brian Staufenbiel and conducted by Nicolle Paiement, the film features tenor Nathan Granner in the titular role of Mr. Chips, soprano Marnie Breckenridge singing Kathie, baritone Lester Lynch as Dr. Merrivale, and bass-baritone Kevin Short as Ralston and Rivers, as well as members of The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (Francisco J. Núñez, Founder and Artistic Director) representing the boarding school’s students.
