The Point of no Return
//Andrew Lloyd Webber - DON JUAN (PHANTOM - behind the curtain)

Passarino - go away!
For the trap is set and waits for its prey. . .(
DON JUAN (PHANTOM)

You have come here
in pursuit of
your deepest urge,
in pursuit of
that wish,
which till now
has been silent,
silent . . .

I have brought you,
that our passions
may fuse and merge -
in your mind
you've already
succumbed to me
dropped all defences
completely succumbed to me -
now you are here with me:
no second thoughts,
you've decided,
decided . . .

Past the point
of no return -
no backward glances:
the games we've played
till now are at
an end . . .

Past all thought
of "if" or "when" -
no use resisting:
abandon thought,
and let the dream
descend . . .
What raging fire
shall flood the soul?
What rich desire
unlocks its door?
What sweet seduction
lies before
us . . .?

Past the point
of no return,
the final threshold -
what warm,
unspoken secrets
will we learn?
Beyond the point
of no return . . .

AMINTA (CHRISTINE)

You have brought me
to that moment
where words run dry,
to that moment
where speech
disappears
into silence,
silence . . .

I have come here,
hardly knowing
the reason why . . .
In my mind,
I've already
imagined our
bodies entwining
defenceless and silent -
and now I am
here with you:
no second thoughts,
I've decided,
decided . . .
Past the point
of no return -
no going back now:
our passion-play
has now, at last,
begun . . .

Past all thought
of right or wrong -
one final question:
how long should we
two wait, before
we're one . . .?
When will the blood
begin to race
the sleeping bud
burst into bloom?
When will the flames,
at last, consume
us . . .?

BOTH

Past the point
of no return
the final threshold -
the bridge
is crossed, so stand
and watch it burn . . .
We've passed the point
of no return .
. .
(By now the audience and the POLICE have realised
that SIGNOR PIANGI is dead behind the curtain, and it is
the PHANTOM who sings in his place. CHRISTINE
knows it too. As final confirmation, the PHANTOM
sings):

PHANTOM

Say you'll share with
me one
love, one lifetime . . .
Lead me, save me
from my solitude . . .

(He takes from his finger a ring and holds it out to her.
Slowly she takes it and puts it on her finger.)

Say you want me
with you,
here beside you . . .
Anywhere you go
let me go too -
Christine
that's all I ask of . . .
Fim

Cai o candelabrio

(We never reach the word 'you', for CHRISTINE quite
calmly reveals the PHANTOM'S face to the audience. As
the FORCES OF LAW close in on the horrifying skull,
the PHANTOM sweeps his cloak around her and
vanishes.
MEG pulls the curtain upstage, revealing PIANGI'S
body garotted, propped against the bed, his head
gruesomely tilted to one side. She screams.)
TRANSFORMATION TO:
REVERSE VIEW OF THE STAGE
(POLICE, STAGEHANDS, etc. rush onto the stage in
confusion. Also: ANDRE, FIRMIN, RAOUL, GIRY,
CARLOTTA and MEG)


CARLOTTA
What is it? What has happened? Ubaldo!

ANDRE
Oh, my God . . . my God. .

FIRMIN
we're ruined, Andre - ruined!

GIRY (to RAOUL)
Monsieur le Vicomte! Come with me!

CARLOTTA (rushing over to PIANGI's body)
Oh, my darling, my darling . . . who has done
this ...?


(Hysterical, attacking ANDRE)

You! Why did you let this happen?

(She breaks down, as PIANGI's body is carried off on a
. Stretcher)

GIRY
Monsieur le Vicomte, I know where they are.
RAOUL

But can I trust you?

GIRY
you must. But remember: your hand at the level of
your eyes!

RAOUL
but why . . .?

GIRY
Why? The Punjab lasso, monsieur. First Buquet.
Now Piangi.

MEG (holding up her hand)
Like this, monsieur. I'll come with you.

GIRY
No, Meg! No, you stay here!

(To RAOUL)
Come with me, monsieur. Hurry, or we shall be too
late .
