"The set design by Ia Ensterä is clean, spare, and soaring."
"The design elements of MMNT shows often receive praise, and it's again easy to see why. Ia Ensterä's stark white, highly architectural set is yet another winner in the designer's impressive oeuvre, and the splashes of bright color with which it is adorned throughout serve as a visual analog of the production's freshness...Similar to an orchestra's wide spectrum of available tone colors, the design work here sparkles and glistens in counterpoint to the melodious quality of the play's direction and execution."
"Ia Enstera's set is simple but clean and elegant with breathtakingly beautiful flourishes and decoration in Act II"
