On Top of the World

Eugene Gallagher


“On top of the world”, from the album “the avalon recordings,” is an opera taking place in four parts.  Part one express the desire to reintroduce a lost love. He is willing to endure whatever punishments and hardships necessary for the potential for another chance at a life together.  Part 2 deals with the sadness that overwhelms when a desperately sought after reconciliation is rejected.  Part 3 is the build up of yet another attempt to reconcile.  Part four concludes with the life that follows in this aftermath.
