The Philadelphia Orchestra opened its 1989 season last night in front of a packed audience of music lovers (above right) at the Academy of Music. The night's theme was "A Salute to Philadelphia's Musical Ambassadors," which paid tribute to the orchestra's role in representing the Delaware Valley, the United States and the world. The orchestra's focus this year will be "Oriental Fantasy" in celebration of its return trip home from touring Japan under the direction of Maestro Riccardo Muti (left)

President Clinton may be having his troubles, but he'll find the City Hall courtyard filled with friendly folks to begin his Philadelphia visit tomorrow - if Mayor Rendell's efforts pay off. Apparently fearful that the lure of a long holiday weekend will shrink the potential audience, Rendell has taken steps to swell the crowd. "We've just received word that President Clinton will be visiting Philadelphia on Friday, May 28, at 11:30 A.M.," said a memo distributed to "all senior staff" at the Office of Housing and Community Development, yesterday.

History. That's what the sellout crowd of 18,168 represented in the Sixers' 107-101 victory over Cleveland last night. It was the team's first sellout in a first-round playoff game since Harold Katz bought the team in 1981. The last time it happened was in 1976-77, when they sold out for games 2, 5 and 7 against Boston. The Sixers drew an announced 15,319 for Game 1 of the best-of-five series Thursday night, and people asked the same old questions about the Sixers' drawing power.

Hoo boy, here's a doozy for you: Full House, premiering tonight (Ch. 6, 8:30 p.m., hereafter Fridays at 8 p.m.), is a sitcom about a guy whose wife just died. (Hold the laugh track a minute.) So he's stuck all alone with his three daughters, ages 10, 5 and (small chuckle here) 6 months. So, what he does, see, he gets the girls' uncle, a thuggish would-be rock star (guffaw!) and his stand-up-comic best friend (hearty laugh) to move in with him. Three male overaged adolescents and three little girls - full house, get it?

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Abby Wambach is coming home to an anticipated full house in Rochester in the U.S. women's soccer star's first game since a World Cup final loss to Japan last weekend. The Sahlen's Stadium ticket office reported yesterday morning that there are about 100 tickets left for the Women's Professional Soccer league game tonight between Wambach's South Florida-based magicJack and the Western New York Flash. The downtown Rochester stadium's capacity is 13,500, though temporary bleachers have been added that would boost the total to about 15,000.

As improbable as a 5-foot-tall, nappy-haired, radical feminist version of James Brown may be, that's what Ani DiFranco has become. Long gone is the one-woman army, thwacking away at her guitar and ranting on behalf of a nascent demographic. At her Wednesday show at the jam-packed Keswick Theatre, DiFranco showed she has moved well beyond blood-and-guts folk-punk to become the flamboyant star of a crackling, regimented live show. But for her audience, she is more iconic - and idealized - than ever.

Crime does pay, the Camden County prosecutor said yesterday. And to prove it, Prosecutor Samuel Asbell won court approval to seize a $100,000 Gloucester Township house where three members of a family were arrested in a gambling raid last year. Asbell said he'll sell the house and keep the money for law enforcement purposes if he gets final court permission. "We're making crime pay for us," he chortled. Lawmen for years have been seizing cars, cash and other ill-gotten gains of criminals.

Carmen's a spitfire, and so is performer Denyce Graves, who gives the-best-little-femme-fatale role a sizzle that's made it her signature in more houses than you or I can count. As for Don Jose, well, Placido Domingo's rather outgrown the part, in years and girth, but the passion that still inflames the world's best-preserved tenor voice still can make you cry for Carmencita as she goes laughing into jealous Jose's wild knife. Opera's most riveting death scene drew gasps again Monday night as the Metropolitan Opera opened the season whirling Bizet's vivacious sorrows into the night.

Longevity is not a word usually associated with music groups, but the House of Assembly, Philadelphia's oldest reggae band, continues to beat the odds. After 12 years in a local music scene that's unkind to even homegrown talent, the Jamaican-born members of House are continuing to ride a crest of popularity that has been stoked by the release last summer of their first LP, "Confusion. " "The album is doing better than we anticipated," said Norman "Mango" Baily, the drummer for House.

HARRISBURG - Democrats who oppose a bill placing new limits on abortion failed Wednesday to delay a vote on the measure, setting the stage for the full House to consider the legislation as early as next week. Democrats in the chamber tried to postpone until mid-June a vote on a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy - except in medical emergencies - instead of 24 weeks under current law. The measure also would sharply curtail medical use of a procedure known as dilation and evacuation.

In the opening scene of Fuller House - Netflix's reboot, premiering Friday, of the popular ABC series Full House - Danny Tanner (Philadelphia's own Bob Saget) and Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) share a knowing look. The camera lingers on their smiling faces too long for the look not to say something. For their sake, I hope the sound of that look is ka-ching! Danny and Uncle Jesse have less to do in this version of the family sitcom than they did in the original, which ran from 1987 to 1995.

CYNTHIA KING drove from her home in Stamford, Conn., for the ceremony at Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church honoring the first day of the U.S. Postal Service's Richard Allen forever stamp.

A bill to save the horse-racing industry in Pennsylvania is on the cusp of passage after it was unanimously advanced by a House committee Monday. The House bill is a slightly amended version of a bill that passed in the Senate over the summer. It represents a compromise worked out by Gov. Wolf, legislative leaders, and industry representatives - an accord that at times seemed close to collapsing. The vote Monday may have made such a collapse less likely. "While we want to take a closer look at some of the other amendments adopted today, we are in a good position to continue conversations as the full House considers the bill," Brandi Hunter-Davenport, press secretary for the Department of Agriculture, said in an email.

IN TODAY'S lead Tattle item, we not only get info about two of America's favorite child stars, but a brief lesson in why trickle-down economics is a joke. According to USA Today , Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and their fashion empire, Dualstar Entertainment Group, have been targeted in a class-action suit by 40 interns, past and present. Dualstar is the parent company of the twins' fashion labels, Elizabeth and James, and The Row. The suit alleges that Dualstar failed to pay interns for menial tasks, and claims they should have been paid minimum wage because they were doing similar kinds of jobs as their paid colleagues, without receiving any academic or vocational credit.

Olsen-free 'Full House' Will anyone watch Netflix's Full House reboot without those adorable original stars, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen , who have turned down the opportunity to star in the new version? (In other words, is a life without the Olsen girls worth living?) Their costars seem copacetic. "They're not doing it, and I'm just happy that they're happy," Bob Saget tells E! News. (But will you be happy when the series fails?) Says Saget, "I want my friends to do what they want to do. . . . They have a whole different creative life now. " Honoring R&B legends The Phillies game Friday against the San Francisco Giants at Citizens Bank Park will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. by live music by Odunde 365 and an awards ceremony honoring the O'Jays and R&B and jazz maestro Jean Carne . Part of the 12th annual Phillies African American Heritage Celebration, the event also will feature appearances by Philadelphia Sound pioneers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff . Carne will perform her hit, "Don't Let It Go to Your Head," and Bunny Sigler will sing the national anthem.

NOT SURE how the big news networks missed this on 4/20, but hip-hop performer Waka Flocka Flame has announced he's running for president. The only thing holding him back? He's 28. Not old enough. This is why you need to pay attention in poli-sci class, kids, to avoid the humiliation of announcing a presidential run before you're eligible. Flame, however, shot a video for Rolling Stone magazine in which he announced his candidacy. "I'm very pleased to announce today, on 4/20, the best day of the year, I will be running for president," he said.

First impressions suggest the Republicans in control of Congress aren't ready to put aside partisanship and govern if it means making peace with President Obama, who is scheduled to meet with congressional leaders at the White House today. In a resounding rebuke of House Speaker John Boehner's past willingness to compromise with the president, 24 Republicans voted against his reelection last week. Due to a number of absences, Boehner (R., Ohio) didn't need their votes. Still, it marked only the fourth time since 1913 that a speaker was elected without a majority of the full House.

In an effort to boost the diversity and size of its audience, the Wilma Theater is slashing the price of most tickets to $25 - about twice the cost of most movie tickets. Such a reduction requires a subsidy, and for this one the Wilma landed a gift from a source sympathetic to theater: philanthropist Leonard Haas, an Equity card-carrying actor, and scion of the family whose fortune formed the William Penn and Wyncote Foundations. Through Haas' recommendation, the Wyncote will subsidize reduced ticket prices with a $750,000 grant doled out over three years.
