He's a jealous man and only wants her performing for him. She changes into the dress he gave her and she sings Ave Maria. He's enchanted. He makes a move on her. He wants to enjoy her "beautiful body," too. He won't force himself on her. He asks her to do the Dance of the Seven Veils. He turns on some tunes and she looks around, uncomfortably.
