* From the ''{{VideoGame/FatalFrame}}'' franchise:
** The first game has Kirie and her unnamed lover. Said lover was a visitor and couldn't stay, while Kirie herself was a shrine maiden who was supposed to have no emotional attachment to anyone for the sake of the ritual, for which she would be sacrificed. The priests, at the Himuro family master's order, killed him to try to keep her from forming emotional attachment, but she found out anyway, causing her conflicted emotions that weakened her resolve as a HumanSacrifice, which ended up with a failed ritual that doomed the Himuro clan and anyone in the mansion, both during and after the ritual.

** The third game has 2 examples. The first example is Reika and Kaname. Since Reika was a Tattooed Priestess that was fated to be sacrificed and males who weren't Master Builder for the shrines were permitted only as temporary guests, they were kept apart. Kaname's desperate attempts to return to the Kuze manor and reunite with Reika eventually led to his PlotTriggeringDeath that Reika was ForcedToWatch, causing the Unleashing that plunged the Kuze household into ruin and lured anyone with SurvivorsGuilt into the Kuze manor to become cursed.

** The other example is Kyouka (a.k.a. Brushing Woman), who fell in love with Akito, a visitor to the Kuze manor. Akito eventually wished to take Kyouka away from the Kuze household, only to be murdered without Kyouka's knowledge, leading Kyouka [[IWillWaitForYou to pine for Akito for the rest of her life (and afterlife)]]. Seeing [[IdenticalStranger Kei]] did nothing to sate her anger toward Akito for thinking she had been abandoned all this time.

* Donizett's ''Lucia di Lammermoor'' has Lucia, the sister of Enrico Ashton, in love with Edgardo di Ravenswood, the rival of her brother. Enrico tries to force Lucia into marrying another man after Edgardo leaves for France, but it ultimately culminates in Lucia going mad and murdering her new husband before dying of said madness, and Edgardo committing suicide out of grief.

** Bellini's earlier opera ''I Capuleti e i Montecchi'' also tells the same story. However, in this version, Giulietta (Juliet) is engaged to a man named Tebaldo (Tybalt), who completely replaces Paris, but Giulietta is in love with Romeo, who is the leader of the Montecchi (Montagues). Just like Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Giulietta commit suicide at the end.


Added DiffLines:

* Bellini also composed ''I puritani'', which tells the story of Elvira, a Puritan and the daughter of the commander of the fortress at Plymouth, and Arturo Talbot, a Cavalier who supports the Stuart dynasty that was briefly overthrown by the anti-royalist insurgency. However, this story ends happily.

* Debussy's opera ''Pelléas et Mélisande'' tells the story of Mélisande, a young woman married to Prince Golaud, who falls in love with her husband's half-brother Pelléas. Naturally, this results in Golaud using their child to spy on the two lovers, and ends with Pelléas being killed by Golaud and Mélisande dying after giving birth to their daughter.

[[folder:Opera]]
* Many an opera has a set of star-crossed lovers, whose romance is doomed by either the circumstances or by other characters around them.
* ''Roméo et Juliette'' by Gounod is based on Shakespeare's famous play, so of course it deals with this.
* Again, Tristan and Isolde, but now in''Tristan und Isolde'', the opera by Creator/RichardWagner.
* Aida and Radames in both Verdi's opera and the musical ''Theatre/{{Aida}}''. Their lover's duet in the musical is even called "Written in the Stars".
* Violetta and Alfredo from Verdi's ''La traviata''. Violetta, a Parisian courtesan with tuberculosis, falls in love with a Alfredo, a poet, and abandons the world of glamour to live a simple life with him. However, Violetta leaves Alfredo at the request of his father Giorgio, resulting in Alfredo humiliating her at a party. Eventually, Violetta's TB worsens, but she and Alfredo manage to reunite before she dies.
* Floria Tosca and Mario Cavaradossi in Puccini's ''Theatre/{{Tosca}}''. After Cavaradossi is arrested for hiding a political prisoner, the corrupt Scarpia forces Tosca to reveal the prisoner's hiding place by torturing Cavaradossi, which results in her lover's anger and political gloating before he is led to execution. Scarpia then gives Tosca the ultimatum that if she sleeps with him, he'd let her lover go. However, despite Tosca killing Scarpia, it turned out that he lied and Cavaradossi ends up killed, so Tosca also commits suicide to avoid arrest.
