Basic Info

Hello everyone!

My name is Anthony Nikitopoulos, and I am a rising junior at Skidmore College. I am majoring in geosciences and theater, and I am spending the fall in Moscow studying at the Moscow Art Theater through NTI (National Theater Institute).

I decided to blog my experience (I guess we’re back in 2012 now) both as a record for myself and as a source of information for others.

The program I am doing is very intense. I was reading through the program handbook, and it said we’d have class from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm; additionally, we will have rehearsals that go as late as midnight and/or start as early as 8 am. Did I mention it’s 6 days a week? Haha. Needless to say, I am nervous, but I’m excited!

I leave in about 3 weeks, and I’m in the process of packing and reading some of the required books. If you’re interested in keeping up with me and my time in Moscow, I’ll be here, and you can expect weekly updates. Leave a comment? I don’t know, subscribe? I’m still figuring out the whole blogging thing. Hope this information is useful for you!

Thanks for reading!
