RAVEL FAMILY, a company of French actors, of whom GABRIEL, born in Toulouse, France, in 1810, was the most noted. The family consisted of ten principals, who for many years played in the cities of France. They were in Paris in 1825, and a year or two later in London, at the Strand theatre and Vauxhall garden. They were remarkable for their rope-dancing, ballets, pantomimes, and tricks that were produced with the aid of stage-machinery. In 1832 the troupe arrived in this country, and on 16 July of that year made their debut at the New York Park theatre. This was followed by renewed engagements at the same place, and performances in other cities. In 1834 the company went to Europe on a vacation. A year later they performed in the French cities, and in 1836 they opened at Drury Lane theatre in London. From 1837 until 1848 the original Ravels gave entertainments in this country, that were interrupted by occasional visits to Canada, a tour to the West Indies and South America, and brief vacations in their native land. In the autumn of 1848 they retired from the stage. In 1866 the remains of the old troupe, combined with new auxiliaries, again appeared here for a short season, but met with an unfavorable reception. The representatives of the original Ravel family gave a variety of performances that were largely unique. Among their harlequinades were " Mazulm, .... The Green Monster," "The Red Gnome," "Asphodel," and " The Golden Pills."
