Went to see the filarmonica orquestra and it was amazing. The music, the theater, everything. I recommend getting tickets to see a performance, because that way you get to see the inside of the theater and enjoy high quality entertainment.

The national opera house of Argentina was meant to impress and indeed it is awesome! We booked a guided tour in Spanish (English also available) and found it really informative and interesting. Much worth both time and money, the guide was very knowledgeable.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes

Sorry this is so late. You have to go to the theatre as far as I know. We went four days before and got our tickets for the date and time we wanted. Good luck!
