Reviews

Cinderella
“Alejandra Perez-Gomez in her debut as the woozy, rubber-legged stepmom, brings fresh vitality to the role. She is a rare and gifted dancer-actress.”
—  National Post

The Sleeping Beauty
“As the wicked fairy Carabosse, Alejandra Perez-Gomez reveled in the role’s theatrical excesses… deliver[ing] her pantomime scenes with relish and an appropriately exaggerated dramatic intensity.”
— DanceTabs.com

Romeo and Juliet
“Alejandra Perez-Gomez adds depth to the role of Lady Capulet. She's not an easy character to like, but Perez-Gomez still makes you feel her anguish when she loses her nephew and daughter.”
