* Opera example: in the fourth act of ''[[Theatre/LaBoheme La bohème]]'', Rodolfo and the dying Mimi have a few minutes by themselves to sing one last duet, including musical reminiscences of the first meeting scene. Its interruption by Mimi's convulsions is heartbreaking, though she still lives for another minute.
