* Death ("Der Tod") from German musical {{Elisabeth}} is in love with the title heroine, but still manages to be rather ...suggestive... with her son. As in, most productions have Death taking the guy's life with a kiss that can be anything from a small peck on the lips to something that approaches a full-out snog.

** Not to mention Death and her son's duet, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9hFnlJIMNY Die Schatten werden länger]] (The Shadows Grow Longer). The two [[AlmostKiss Almost Kisses]] and Death practically forcing her son to dance with him don't help matters at all.

* In ''StarlightExpress'', Electra's IAmSong "AC/DC" includes the lyrics "[[BiTheWay AC/DC, it's okay by me. I can switch and change my frequency.]]". His equal-opportunity entourage doesn't do anything to discourage the HoYay, either. (The 2012 UK tour increases this even further, as Electra and Greaseball [[spoiler:[[AccidentalKiss almost kiss]]]] in "One Rock N' Roll Too Many"!)

* Operas are good in this. See Don Carlo and Rodrigo. If that's not Ho Yay, nothing is.
** Geez, it's the 16-century Catholic Spain we're talking about, man. Plus, Carlo is in love with Elizabeth, his own stepmother, and Rodrigo is a Knight of Malta. He probably didn't even know such things existed!
** Well, let's just say that the least homoerotic production of Don Carlo this troper has seen had them lying on the floor together, clasping each other's faces.
* Also, depending on the singers, but in Il Trovatore, the rivalling over Leonora might be just an excuse to cover up the incestuous Foe Yay.
* Don Giovanni/Leporello. Especially in modern productions. Apparently, 1003 women are not enough...

Don Carlo and Rodrigo. Rodrigo in Verdi's ''Don Carlo.'' If that's not Ho Yay, nothing is.
** Geez,
is. Even though it's the 16-century Catholic Spain we're talking about, man. Plus, Spain, Carlo is in love with his (same-age) stepmother Elizabeth, his own stepmother, and Rodrigo is a Knight of Malta. He probably didn't Malta, even know such things existed!
** Well, let's just say that
the least homoerotic production of Don Carlo this troper has seen had productions sometimes have them lying on the floor together, clasping each other's faces.
* Also, **In ''Il Trovatore,'' depending on the singers, but in Il Trovatore, the Manrico and Count di Luna's rivalling over Leonora might be can seem like just an excuse to cover up the their incestuous Foe Yay.

** Onegin/Lensky. And it ends in a duel because Onegin is an asshole and flirts with Olga.
** Amfortas/Klingsor before they lost their, um, instruments.
** Titus/Sextus in Mozart's ''La Clemenza di Tito'' (Tito's Clemency). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFmvp8Duc_M It's just not possible to interpret this otherwise.]]
** Pick a Britten opera. ANY Britten opera. The fact that Britten himself was gay and wrote most of his leading tenor roles for his life partner Peter Pears made this inevitable.
*** ''Peter Grimes'' has no adult Ho Yay but there's the possibility he's a pedophile. Eek.
*** ''Billy Budd.'' It takes place on a 18th century warship, with an all-male cast. You can pair up anyone with anyone.
*** ''The Turn of the Screw'': Quint/Miles. Jessel/Flora. Jessel/Governess. If you are evil, even Mrs. Grose/Governess.
*** ''Death in Venice'': Aschenbach/Tadzio is canon, althoguh nothing ever happens, but the tension! It needs more love.

* The OBC of ''NextToNormal'', and the tension between [[ParentalIncest Gabe and Dan]] is ridiculous. Especially in the reprise of "I Am the One", where [[spoiler: Gabe is trying to get Dan to acknowledge he's real]], with all the touching and the emotion going on.
