I assume that the others are the most recent remasterings (the same ones used for Great Recordings of the Century?). The flimsy box and packaging require some care when handling.

The bonus CD-ROM contains libretti and translations in English, French and German, plus a Callas photo library, while remastered treats include Callas's first recital recording, originally made for the Fonit-Cetra label and featuring arias by Wagner and Bellini. - Barnes & Noble.
3) All of the titles in the former have been issued before, in some cases multiple times, on a variety of different labels, and with mixed results, particularly in terms of the quality of the restorations. This selection, spanning something more than a decade starting in 1949, captures Callas at the peak of her art, her stagecraft compensating, in part, for any vocal flaws or mishaps, particularly in later years. The exception is the remarkable 1964 Tosca, here complete on CD and with two versions of Act II on film, one from London and the other from Paris.
Maria Callas LIVE: Remastered Live Recordings 1949–1964's first three operas are the 1949 Nabucco, 1950 Parsifal, and 1951 I Vespri Siciliani. The set culminates with the 1955 Berlin Lucia di Lammermoor, conducted by Herbert von Karajan, 1960 Poliuto, and 1964 Tosca, followed by Blu-rays of the 5 concerts: Paris 1958, Hamburg 1959 & 1962, and London 1962 & 1964.
