Created especially for Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, perhaps the most esteemed and time-honored dance company in the world, the piece known at its premiere as Misericordes is a richly imagined reinterpretation of Hamlet. This recording of its opening night performance in Moscow captures both the boundary-pushing vision of choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and the breathtaking artistry of Svetlana Lunkina, Dmitri Gudanov, and other Bolshoi dancers.
