At this moment in the repertoire of actor there are three leading parts in sensational performances. Moreover he is laureate of one theatrical award (in 2004 he became laureate of the International Competition of Actors of Operetta and Musical).
Rock-opera «Romeo and Juliet»
The premiere took place on May 7, 2002, on the stage of the Odessa academical Music Comedy theatre named after M.Vodyanoy. A leading part (Romeo) was played by Kirill Turichenko and he continues to play it and now.
The stage director of the performance Georgiy Kovtun made the serious demands to all actors. So, they should not only sing, play and dance perfectly, but also execute difficult acrobatic tricks. All of these elements were dictated by scenography: two board constructions moved by the stage, transforming in imagination of spectators to locks of Montague and Capulet, to fighting vehicles, to serf towers.
The textures of suits of heroes well-matched to all atmosphere of performance: "skin-bast mat-zamsh-metal". The stage director of performance, the choreographer, the honoured worker of arts of Russia, the winner of the international contests considered that the majority of performances, based on the Shakespeare's works are very refined and coddled, that is why he wanted to show a power and pressure, epoch – barbarous. And it has given an original colouring. Young sincerely enamoured Romeo and Juliet are especially fragile, defenceless and pure against a huge and blind power on the background.
This rock opera is being sold out for every performance for many years.
«The Canterville ghost»
In January 2004, Kirill became a laureate of the «Man of the Year» award in nomination «The opening of the year». And in August on the stage of the Odessa academical Music Comedy theatre named after M.Vodyanoy took place “The Canterville Ghost” premiere, based on the same named Oscar Wilde's book. Kirill acts a leading role again – the ghost sir Simon.
The musical was produced by the Honoured worker of Arts of Russia Georgiy Kovtun. Kirill Turichenko plays a three hundred-years-old ghost.
The musical «Siliconovaya dura.net» is a modern tragicomedy about life of senior pupils. Along with an appreciation of experts, this performance has caused the rough discussions and disputes that the theatre did not know yet.
Turichenko’s hero Mitya became a victim of the Internet.
