* An interesting example occurs in ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', where the two leads are separated, and reprising back and forth between two songs ("76 Trombones" and "Goodnight, My Someone"), which work together as a duet.

* Played with in the original production of SpringAwakening: During "Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind", Moritz and Ilse are shown to be in the same location and are clearly talking/singing to each other, but they are staged in a way that conveys distance and never look at each other, showing their conversational disconnect despite their physical closeness.

* ''ThePajamaGame'' pulls off the epic stunt of having a character sing a Distant Duet with ''himself''. Toward the beginning of Act One, Sid sings "Hey There" into a dictaphone, bragging about how he doesn't need love and telling himself to stay away from romance. At the end of the act, Sid, who has now realized that he's deeply in love with Babe, inadvertently turns the machine back on and begins to echo the voice on the record, singing a duet with himself about how his feelings have changed.

* But for the limitations of mid-Eighties technology, Live Aid might have included a real-life example of this trope. David Bowie and Mick Jagger wanted to perform a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin transatlantic duet]] of the song "Dancing in the Street". When this proved impossible to achieve without one of them miming to a pre-recorded track (which neither of them wanted to do) they made a video instead.

** The musical also features "Come to My Garden" and "Lift Me Up," a duet sung between Lily and her son, Colin. This is a particularly extreme distance, as Lily is deceased; it's implied that she is visiting the boy in a dream.

This is a particularly extreme distance, as Lily is deceased; it's implied that she is visiting the boy in a dream. Something similar happens in "How Could I Ever Know," a duet between Lily and her (still-living) husband.
