Biography of Kirill Grebenshchikov

Parents did not discourage their son from following in their footsteps, although at that time they would have preferred that he had a different profession, because in the acting business, success depended very much on chance, and not on talent and abilities.

Then he graduated from all ten classes of high school and in 1989 he was safely enrolled in the Moscow Art Theater School-Studio at the production department, where he studied for a couple of years as an artist-stage technologist.
