** A different counterpoint duet in ''Wicked'' is "Wicked Witch of the East" - Nessa reprises her and Boq's passage from "Dancing Through Life", while Elphaba sings the incantation to [[spoiler:turn Boq into the Tin Man]] quietly in counterpoint.

* ''Farmer Refuted'' from ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' skips the second step: first, we have Samuel Seabury singing about how the American people should not be tempted into revolution (with a couple of short interjections by the other characters), and then he sings the same verse again, but this time with Hamilton's much faster rapped response layered on top, written such that sometimes he says the same word or sound at the same time as Seabury. As an example, here are the first two lines, with the simultaneous common sounds bolded:
-->'''Seabury:''' '''Heed''' not the rabble who '''scream, revolution!''' They '''have not''' your interests at '''heart.'''
-->'''Hamilton:''' '''Hed''' have you all unravel at the sound of '''screams''' but the '''revolution''' is coming, the '''have-nots''' are gonna win this, its '''hard''' to listen to you with a straight face!

* "Don't Do Sadness" / "Blue Wind" from ''SpringAwakening''. Moritz's half ("Don't Do Sadness") is a loud, rock-influenced BSODSong, while Ilse's half ("Blue Wind") is a nostalgic, [[LonelyPianoPiece piano-accompanied lament]].

*** But NOT unusual in GilbertAndSullivan: offhand, "Welcome gentry" from {{Ruddigore}}, for instance, or, for that matter, "I am so proud" from TheMikado. Sullivan tended, when writing a double chorus, to either contrast fast and slow (say, "Tower warders"/"'Tis the autumn" from ''TheYeomenOfTheGuard'', dotted rhythms vs. straight ("When the Foeman"/"Go ye heroes"), or triple meter vs. double meter.

*** It's only a semi-example because she starts midway through the song and does not sing independently before the counterpoint.

* In MissSaigon, the song "I Still Believe" is sung by Kim and Ellen. Kim is alone in a hovel singing about how much she loves and misses Chris, praying and still fervently believing that he will come back for her. Ellen is halfway around the world in a comfortable bedroom, sitting right next to the sleeping Chris. Subverted in that the only counterpoint is the setting. Ellen's lyrics show that she is just as lonely and desperate as Kim (Chris' trauma over the loss of Kim has caused him to push Ellen away) and just as fervent in her belief that one day Chris will trust her enough to confide in her.
* In NextToNormal, the song "Who's Crazy?/My Psychopharmacologist and I" is primarily sung by Diana and Dan, with the other actors as ensembles. Dan is reflecting on how and why Diana was having treatments while Diana was telling the audience her path of treatments.
