I think you are referring to a tour performance in Detroit, not Cleveland.  I have a copy and it 
is in rather mediocre in-house sound, but the performance is exciting.  This performance was, 
I think, Simionato's last in the U.S.  She sings in Italian while the rest sing in French!

There is a great picture of Simionato as Dalila, in her biography, in which she is wearing a 
kind of slinky formal evening dress with high-heeled shoes and a slit up the leg!  Apparently 
Dalila was a real style setter.
