At the beginning, I'd rather see her do roles that she didn't do at NYCB, so that ruled out Lilac. And by Big Swan, you do mean Odette-Odile, don't you? They wouldn't dare put her in the corps, would they? Would they?

Well, this is going back a bit, but remember what they did to Rebecca Wright when she joined from the Joffrey? True, I don't think the Joffrey had formal ranks of dancers then, but by anyone's standards she was a principal there. Wright spent the longest time in the corps -- I was astonished to see her dancing one of the little black swans in the fourth act of Swan Lake (that was back when they had a proper Swan Lake and a proper fourth act). She never really made it to the principal ranks at all, perhaps appropriately. At least Meunier's starting a bit higher up the ladder than Wright, but I really could see Meunier being made to work her way through the second-banana roles, just to teach her who's boss.

Rebecca Wright was the first ballerina in the U.S. to dance Titania with The Joffrey Ballet, first U.S. company to do 'The Dream'.

If she starts at City Center, I'm guessing (since they have not announced their rep.) she might start in one of those pas de deux the stick between the Tudor revival and the new modern piece. I'm thinking Black Swan with Gomes. I'd love to see her in Symphony in C (any movement), but I can see them sticking her in the fourth movement or one of the demi soloists to show them who's boss.
