Re the conceit that Pippin's life is being performed as a circus, with jugglers and balancing acts and trapezes. I felt that the idea is slightly misjudged - after all, "players" (as in the original) can improvise and break from the script and be chastised for it; circus performers don't "act" in the same sense, so having Catherine suddenly break from the script seemed a bit fuzzy, like an off-note, not quite logically united to the core.

Also, the interpretation of Charlemagne was weird. Charlemagne as some sort of aged hippy?? I don't get the approach. And seemed out of keeping with the character who philosophizes in the chapel before being assassinated. Such a hippy would be more likely to have instituted the ideas that Pippin tries as King. If so, disillusionment would be the key to the character.
