Music Mondays: "Point of No Return" from Phantom of the Opera

"What warm unspoken secrets will we learn beyond the point of no return?"
--The Phantom

I've seen this movie way, way too much, as well as a couple of live versions of the show. In many cases, the live show is often far better than the movie, but I've never this scene done as well as it is in the movie. Fun details to notice: the magically slipping shoulders of Christine's dress, the Phantom's trick of making her touch herself while he caresses her, and Raoul's horrified expression while he watches her melt into the arms of another man.
