Two-time Tony winner Nathan Lane is part of the New York Philharmonic’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration, La Vie Parisienne, Dec. 31 at David Geffen Hall in Lincoln Center.

The Broadway favorite will narrate Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. The narration, in which each animal is a New York archetype, was commissioned by the Philharmonic and written by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin, whose collaborations include the Tony-nominated and Olivier Award-winning Legally Blonde, The Musical.

Lane is returning to the Philharmonic following his January 2013 debut hosting Symphonic Sondheim, a performance of symphonic suites of music from Sondheim shows.

The concert is telecast live nationally on "Live From Lincoln Center" on PBS stations beginning at 8 PM ET; check local listings.
