A wonderful tribute and celebration of the late David Wall – one of the great male dancers of the British Royal Ballet. Tony Sargeant photographed this bronze – it stands on the Thames embankment just upstream from Tate Britain. One remembers with delight seeing, in the 1970s,  Anthony Dowell, David Wall, and Michael Coleman dancing as Romeo, Mercutio and Benvolio in Macmillans Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden – with Lynn Seymour as Juliet – a final scene to make you cry – well at least it made me cry.
